Adding a featured image

What’s a featured image?

The featured image of your project is the image that will be used to generate the thumbnail that will represent that particular project in your profile page. If you find your profile page shows up blank or with empty spots even after you uploaded your projects that’s probably because you didn’t set any featured image.

Your project featured image can be any of the images you use in the content of the project or a completely different one. If you want to learn more about how to make the most of your featured images please visit our portfolio tips section, but for now let focus on how to set up our project’s featured image.
