    Hi Nick,

    You attach a thumbnail-sized image to the first post of your thread. It will automatically re-size to a thumbnail if the picture is larger, but this can be distracting when viewing someone's sketchbook.

    Ahoy there, I'm having a bit of trouble with this too. Does the thread thumbnail have to be the first attached image? I placed an attached image in my first sketchbook post without placing it, but the first placed image still overrides it. Do I need to gut my first post and rearrange what order I uploaded the images in? Thanks!

    I think it uses the first attached image as the thumbnail.

    that does seem to be the case -- whatever is top of the list in the Attachment Manager for the first post in the thread seems to become the thumbnail. the only way to change the order presently seems to be to "gut" the post as mentioned before. if this can be changed so you can reorder the images in Attachment Manager, or specify which image should be used for the thumbnail, it would be a great improvement.

    thanks.
