Want excerpts to show full size first image instead of excerpts

I have excerpts for posts enabled on my home however I want the full size first image to be displayed and not the thumbnail. How can I do this? I figured out how to show the full size first image by adding the tag in ATO Don't strip this section under configure excerpts but when i do that the post thumbnail and the first image are displayed.

Thanks in advance for anyone's help on this.

Don't use the featured image function.

So I have to go back through each post and disable the featured image?

You could also try adjusting the thumbnail size in the Thumbnail section of the theme options.

Is there a way to actually edit the theme file to make the excerpt really just be the post only shortened?

I do not want it pulling the image in from the featured image area and I want it to pull in all the images in the first 250 characters....not just one.

I'm looking in functions.php but not finding what I am looking for....i think?

Okay so it looks like if I manually add the
Code:
<!--more-->
to each post and leave it on full content instead of excerpt this will achieve this. A bit of a pain but not terrible and it makes for a cleaner transition than getting cut off in the middle of the sentence too.

If there is a way to do this automatically I would be interested still though.
