Thanks for the answers. I am just getting started with Orchard. So far I have Orchard 1.3 installed with no custom modules.
The layout we want for the blog would be to have an image selected by the author of the blog post displayed next to the blog highlight. This site uses the layout http://channel9.msdn.com/
@bertrandleroy This module looks like it would help with getting images loaded in the media library at the right size. Thanks.
Is there a tutorial or guide to extending the blog content type?
@sebastienros I don't see an image field in the content types that have been installed with Orchard 1.3. Is this something I need to load from the gallery?
