This is a very simple setup and uses the Pixel Showcase Widget (a modified version of WP’s own text widget).

  1. Prepare your image with a preferred width of 960px. Your height is up to you but I recommend you keep it around 200px in height for visual appearance.
  2. Upload your image to your Media Library and copy the image path
  3. In your admin, go to Appearance >> Widgets >> drag a Showcase Widget into the Showcase widget panel
  4. You will see several fields to fill in, but only do the Title for the admin side only, Image Path, and the ALT description for your image:
    showcase-widget-fields
  5. If you are using the Widget Logic plugin to manage where widgets are seen, add the WordPress Conditional tag into the Widget Logic field
  6. Click Save
