My featured images are not appearing when I drill into individual blog posts.
IOW: on my main page, the images appear as expected; but when I click on an individual blog post and view it as a standalone page, the image isn't present.
Genesis framework with metro pro child theme.
In the genesis settings, under "Content Archives" I have include featured images checked.
In the "blog page template" section I have "All Categories" checked, although I've tried several options here with no change.
Any help is appreciated!
The featured image is for archive pages and widgets. If you want to include the featured image in the post itself simply add it wherever you want it to appear.

I am having the same problem. The featured image does not appear on the individual post page. The image only appears on the post page if I add it (add media) in the post content. The problem is that then, both the thumbnail AND the full image appear on my blog page side by side, when all I want on the blogpage is the thumbnail.
How can I add the full size image to the post page and only a thumbnail in the blog page?
I found a way around it, but it isn't ideal in my situation.
What I want: Full image in individual posts and a thumbnail image in the blog page along with the excerpt.
As suggested above, I removed the featured image and added the media in the content of my post; the image appears as it should in the post.
In the dashboard Genesis/Theme Settings, in Content Archives I specified 'Display Content' and 'Include the Featured Image'/Thumbnail etc.
The reason this is not ideal is that unless you specify the number of characters to show (e.g., 700), which then limits every excerpt to the same number of characters, then the entire post shows up along with the thumbnail and the full-size image. I didn't specify the number of characters to show at first because I want to control where the excerpt breaks using the manual break in the post content editor.
You can use display excerpts rather than content setting. Then make the excerpt whatever you want it to be. That way your archive will display the thumbnail and whatever you put in the excerpt box. The photo that you place in the post itself won't be displayed in the excerpt unless you add there, which obviously you don't want to do.
