I checked almost all blogs start with an image and then the content part start. Is there any trend or data is there which tell blog posts having top image below/above headline work well and vice vera. Please feel to share what blogs design UI/UX you like most Cheer!

@deepak_positive yes, it can be. But how effective it is, it's bit hard to find. My thinking is headline play more effective role than image here

UI/UX design is a vast subject...I think you'll be able to find lots of articles on the pro's and cons of hero images (I found this one: https://www.push10.com/everybody...) but at a simple level I suppose they are a way to draw people (along with a headline) into the main subject of your page...to get someone to click through and read more....plus, they look nice :-D ha!

@onmydeckmusic Thank you for sharing the post. I read a lot about in last couple of day and right answer I get is if image has relevance to post you can use the header image. If not, there is no need, a good headline matter a lot than a hero image.
