Hi, I’m just getting started using Hellp Pro 2 (as you will see when you go to the site-in-progress link). I’m having a problem adding a front page image. I add the image in the Front Page Background image (in the Customizer) and then in the Home Page Welcome widget. The image that I want to see displays, but on top of that image sits a small thumbnail of the same image. I can’t figure out how to remove the small thumbnail, or how I am adding it. I’ve scoured your documentation on this site, but I do not see what I’m doing wrong. I will immensely appreciate some help with this.

i just want to clarify that my intention is to have just an image spanning the Welcome widget section of the home page, i.e., no text in this section of the home page.
I tried to add the image just in the Front Page Background and I tried adding it only in the home page Welcome widget – in both cases, the image would not display. I found that an image only displays when I add the image in both places. But then BOTH display. Seems to be both or none at all.

I have figured out that, to see the background image, content is required in the same container (duh – that’s how background images work). When I added the widget image, I was giving the welcome container some content, so that’s why the background image didn’t display until I also added the widget image. But then, of course, I was getting two images, a little one on top of a larger.
So – ONE way to have a full page spanning image is to specify a background image, not a widget image, but include content – text or other – and enough of it so as to push open that container to reveal the full image height.
But that’s not what I want.
To achieve my goal of displaying just an image with no other content, that spans the full width of the welcome section across all display widths: Eliminate the background image, add an image widget to the welcome section that is large enough (probably 1600 by at least 500 – that’s what the Hello Pro documentation gives for the background image dimensions anyway), and then apply CSS to remove padding and/or margins across all the display widths of the image widget.
Slightly laborious, but it works, and I’m not seeing any other way of doing this with the Hello! Pro theme.
So – I guess I have answered my own question.
