Hi Kriesi support crew!
BACKGROUND: The landing page on my site is my blog overview. It’s set to show only three posts at a time.
ISSUE: Featured images appear on blog overview pages twice: once at the very top of the page, and again just above the post they belong to. For example, if two of the posts on a given overview page each have one featured image, FOUR images show on the overview page. Both images show at the very top of the page (where they don’t belong), and each shows up AGAIN just above it’s post (where it belongs).
DESIRED SOLUTION: I would like my featured images to show up only once (just above the posts they belong to) on my blog overview pages.
Thanks in advance,

Under Settings > Reading, do you have the Frontpage settings set to “Your latest posts”?

Yes, my frontpage settings are set to “Your latest posts.”
Thanks for working with me to find a fix :)

I looked at your page, and I see but a single image on your home page. Is there a way you can replicate the problem? Otherwise I can’t tell you how to fix it when I can’t see it.

Thanks for checking out the issue. The problem is presently on pages 2 and 3 of the blog overview.
To clarify, my overview only shows three posts at a time. Whenever a post with a featured image is the third and last post on the page, that post’s featured image shows twice: once above the post (as it should) and again at the very top of the main-content area of the blog overview page.

To make your life easier, I’ve recreated the problem on the main page of my site.
Since two posts on the main page use featured articles, the image from the third and last post appears at the top of the page as well as above the post it belongs to.

Yup. I see what you mean now. For some reason I never noticed that. So you are using a custom template for the homepage with a title, a horizontal bar, a slideshow and a blog? If that is the case, why not just remove the slideshow from the template?
Because the only way I can come close to replicating the look of the page is by adding a second slideshow above the start of the blog. If you go to Choices > Template Builder in the backend, and select the template you are using, and remove the extra slideshow, all should be well.
If I am guessing this wrong, then the simplest thing to do would be to create a blank page and save it, create a new Template in template builder with Heading, Horizontal Ruler, and Blog as the three options, and then attach it to the page you’ve just made, save, go to Choices > Theme Options , and make sure the front page now points to your newly made page.
Are you using the latest version of Choices – 1.5 ? I put up a video playing around the posts , and templates and some big apples, I go over visually what I wrote above. I am apologize in advance for its amateurishness, as I am still experimenting with the video program. http://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/clQVqvMr3

I’m not using a custom template. The blog overview you see as my landing page is the default blog archive page, without any tweaks or changes made to the format. All I do is link an image from my media gallery to the post through the featured slideshow widget.
Thank you for the video! I will try making a custom template for my blog and site’s landing page (to replace the one currently showing featured images more than once) soon. I’ll post an update when that’s happened.
Thanks for your patience and for taking the time to make a video to help me! Best,

That’s strange, because before I started playing around with it in the video, I was also using the standard features, and everything looked completely different. There is something not working properly if the featured post widget is behaving this way. I would try to use the custom templates as it’s shown in the video, since I am sure you have better things to spend your time on than reinstalling and testing for the cause of this (which most likely is another plugin, or a partially incomplete update of WordPress or the theme).
Please let us know how you are progressing,
