To manually change the Category image to be whatever image you want go into the ACP and then modify the category and near the top you can specify which image to use for the category.
What that means is that if the image you want to use for the category is also an image in your gallery but you don't want to use the automatically generated thumbnail of that image then you'll need to create a resized copy of that image in the dimensions you want and then manually specifing the category image in the ACP to be your one-off copy.
actuallyI was doing that before. My question is really... how do you control the size of the autogenerated thumbnail? (can you?)
I have like a hundred categories and growing... I'd much rather be able to use the auto generate feature than have to make a new thumbnail for every category (for obvious reasons).
