Before I dismiss this beautiful theme from consideration, I'd like to make sure I'm understanding how the featured image works. It appears that if I want an existing post/image to appear in the carousel, I must designate a featured image for that post. If my chosen featured image already exists in the post, it will be duplicated above the post's headline. In its position as the featured image above the headline, the image will not show a caption and will not function as a link to any larger version/display. This means giving careful thought to the use of images in new posts and probably a redesign of existing posts to avoid the duplication of existing images.
Am I correct in my understanding of how this theme handles featured images, or am I doing something wrong?
