    Hi there!

    The image that appears in the front page is the blog post’s featured image. It can be set when you edit the post from the right settings bar under Featured Image. This guide has the steps you need to take to add one:

    If you don’t set a featured image, your site is set to display the first image added to the content of the blog post. You may change this behavior by going to Customizer > Content Options and unchecking the “Automatically use first image in post” option.

    This other guide has more information about Content Options:

    And this one has instructions to set up your theme:

    Also just a heads-up that since your site has a Premium plan, you’re entitled to live-chat and email support, accessible here:
    https://wordpress.com/help/contact
    You’re welcome to still post in these forums, but those other support avenues may be faster, and you’ll always get a staff reply.
