Learned a new trick :D



// To enable Post Thumbnails, the current theme must include add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' ); ( add to functions.php add following )

 -2-STEP- (optional)

// Gets the Featured Image (formerly called Post Thumbnail) as set in post's or page's edit screen and returns an HTML image element representing a Featured Image, if there is any, otherwise an empty string.

set_post_thumbnail_size( 330, 200); ( add to functions.php under the -STEP1- )


Go to dashboard. Open some kind of post and on thr right side you can see Featured Image BoX. Add the image with the media library and you are done :)
