Using a custom field within an excerpt... or trying to


I am moving a large blog site over to Atahaulpa as part of a re-design.

The old site theme uses a custom field (image) within the excerpt. I presume it is part of the theme

old site

new site

My question is where ( using ATO ) can I put my code to achieve the same result


"get the custom field(image)", "echo the excerpt text", "display the (styled in ATO excerpts) Read More"

<img src="/wp-content/uploads/%meta('image')%" alt="%post-title%" />
Is what I thought might work to get the image -

is this correct ?

where should I be putting it ?

One last thing - the excerpt text is written by the author for each post and entered via the dashboard (it is not a generated snippet)

Thanks in advance
