    I recently seen a WSO demo that would allow you to assign a thumbnail image to your WordPress website.

    When your site is returned in search results it displays a thumbnail image beside your website - making it more attractive to searchers.

    Anyone know of the plugin or how to implement this?

    Abdullah, I don't think your method works - i tried and it didn't;

    but there is another way;
    Since google can reconize faces and if no face is on autorship pic, it gets erased.
    However, Google allows to put images of recipes into snippets.
    One thing here - might G do not recognize if something is a dish or is not, so you can actually use a pic you like and implement it with google rich snippets recipes markup.

    But be warned - doing so got my page banned manually.

    This all is snippet. It is available at every search engine help tool. They provide some tools and plugins which tells how to assemble it with your site.

    Your probably right. It did work for me but it was only a face like you said.

    there are few methods- if you are software developer you are entitled to use schema mark up called softwareapplication which lets you dispplay the picture in serps. you can also display your face in serps if you connected your blog with gplus profile. there is also blackhat way to display pictures in serps by using schema markup called recipe which should be use to markup food recipes. i saw a website using this to display pictures from some island or some shit for quite a while and if no one will report you, its ok. i cant believe someone had his site banned because of using recipe markup. there is special spam report for rich snippets in google but i believe the biggest penalty would be dissapearing of picture but not deindexing...
