    Is there a way to use a different featured image for featured posts on the homepage? I’d like the featured post image to be a horizontal banner, but my featured images are typically vertical, so when it crops to the dimensions I need, there’s not much to see. [And usually my vertical images aren’t wide enough either… so I have the original size image then.]

    I found the Extended Images plugin for the Minimum 2.0 theme that I think would be perfect, but I’m not using the Minimum 2.0 theme…. I have just customized the Genesis Sample child theme to my needs.

    I think the only way around this is to set up your featured images at the design stage to be the size of the featured image setting on the home page. Then you would put another image on your actual post, that has been set to be the width of the post content area, and whatever height you want.

    But if you want to change the width and height of the home page featured image boxes, you can do that in the functions.php file and as well in your css file. It should be very obvious where the image sizes are in the functions.php file, then you need to use Firebug to find the class to adjust it in your css as well.
