Don't try this plugin without backing up your website first. I set the category to an image, and it then sets every the featured image of every post in that category to the category image. I then deleted the category featured image and every post now has no featured image. Not happy! Now to restore my website.

deletes the featured images of the posts in the category and inserts the image in all posts in the category in its place. Useless

As I can see some negative reviews here, thos are bcos those people might be unaware of what the plugin does. It sets category featured image as post featured image. And it did that perfectly. What I suggest is when we add category list using wordpress default category block in pages, If these category images show up there.. Then that would be amazing .
