As the title suggests, I am trying to get the portfolio part of a site I’m working showing the correct part of an image as featured. I have a large portrait image set as the featured image, but the box automatically centres on the middle of the image. Since it’s a drawing of a person this means I get a view of their groin, whereas I’d prefer a view of the head (i.e. the top part of the image). Is there some way to specify which part of the image will be shown in the featured image area?
Unfortunately no there is not. What you can do however is crop the image yourself and upload the croped version directly overtop of the generated image via ftp. It depends on where you have the images set to be stored but this is the best way to get absolute control of how the final result is.
