To change your featured image, mouse over the board you want to edit and click “Edit Board Cover.” From there you will be able to scroll through your pins and choose which image you want to use for the cover. Just click “Set Cover” and you’re done.
You can also set your Board Cover while you’re browsing within your board. Just mouse over any of your pins to select it. We noticed some lagging when we tried this out, but every new feature comes with a few kinks.
