    Is there a theme function (or WordPress function) that will let me get the URL of the (first) featured image associated with the post, when I am in the single post view?


    Yes – you can use following code to get the first featured image – if you replace [0] with [1] you’ll get the second and so on:

    if ($slides){
    $postimage = avia_image_by_id($slides[0]['slideshow_image'],'thumbnail',$output = 'url');
    echo $postimage;

    You can replace “thumbnail” with another image size too…
