    Hi Dominic, 

    Regarding your first question - You can do that via our PHP integration library. Please see our sample PHP project:  https://github.com/cloudinary/cloudinary_php/tree/master/samples/PhotoAlbum

    Regarding the featured images, Please insert the image to a post first and save the post as draft. If you did all that and that still didn't work, please explain us what steps you've taken so we can further assist you.

    I also cannot get featured images to work, even when following the steps noted.  It shows up in WP media as clouldinary content, but when I add it as a featured image, it does not show up in my blog. However, when I change my theme to the new Twenty Thirteen, it shows correctly.  So it has to be with the PHP setting of how the content is pulled.   I will dig into the settings and see if I can find the setting, but if you have any feedback, it would be greatly appreciated.

    I can resize Cloudinary images before using them in a post but, how do I resize images for use as the featured image?  Is the image size I chose for the post the one I get in the featured image?  Can I control the size of the Cloudinary featured image?

    You can use Cloudinary images as featured images either by inserting images to your post or by clicking on "Add to post gallery".

    The image that would be used as a featured image is based on Cloudinary transformations you apply using Cloudinary's web interface (e.g., resize, rotate, round, add overlays, etc.). You can generate images of any size and effect you want.

    Then the transformed image you selected as a featured image might be furthered manipulated or resized to match the requirements of your WordPress theme. This means that if your theme displays featured images in certain dimensions, the selected images would be automatically resized again to fit the dimensions.
