My latest Hub has a banner graphic at the top that stretches across the page, I've notice that this is picked up as the graphic used next to the summary in listings. Is there any way of getting a better picture instead of the banner?
I'm not positive, but I think if you insert another smaller photo somewhere beneath it (one that sits right) this will become your thumbnail. Something you can try, if you want to.
The summary image will be the first image in the hub that is greater than 80 pixels high and wide. There isn't currently any way to control it beyond that (and realistically, there won't be any time soon).
Oops, I was wrong, sorry!
I thought that might work cos I know that if you have a video at the top and no other images it shows your profile pic.. and then I inserted a photo beneath the video and that became the thumbnail.
Thats OK Isabella, thanks for the help, I was just about to upload as I spotted Paul's post!
It doesnt look brilliant, but I will happily live with it (eg: http://hubpages.com/tag/second+life/hot ) . The hub editing system on the whole is brilliant, I make similar editing systems for a living and know how hard it is to make them simple to use and rich enough in function at the same time
Edit: Also sorry for putting this in the wrong section, I guess it should have gone in help!
To update, I made the banner 79 pixels high which made no difference to how it looks on the page, and the system then picked up the second image for the summary instead, which is great!
Brilliant, thanks Paul.

I would like to show only a Thumbnail size photo to the left of the opening paragraph (of my Hub) to give it an engraved design. Is there a way to do this with Hub photo editing tools? Thanks.

I'd like to know if the main image you use on your hubs affects either ranking or traffic. I know the thumbnail plays a huge role in YouTube videos but what about our hubs? Does it matter?

I've just published a new hub, and I would like to change its publicly displayed thumbnail. How to get it done? Thanks.

I didn't know this, but when you post a link on RedGage, if you use a thumbnail, that thumbnail is saved in your pictures folder there. Why didn't I know it? Well that's my fault.I use RG for backlinks and don't pay a lot of attention to it usually. But today I got an e-mail from RG saying...

I want to write a HUB and it will discuss about a dozen online images. I want the reader to be able to see the images as I include them with my writing in my HUB article. I could try to get approval for all of them, but it's unlikely that will happen. What are my best options? To ask the reader to...

I have seen in most of the hubs about how they are keeping thumbnail images even after a list of photos. for example: if we have 20 pics, how we can keep only 5 or 6 thumbnail images on above the slide show.
