Wordpress thumbnails not working

I need to display thumbnails on this page http://atv5.mywebsitelead.com/portfolio/. It's showing all images at 630px width which are resized by css to the thumbnail size. However I need to display the thumbnails. I inserted add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' ); into functions.php, but nothing changed. Do you have any ideas on how to make the thumbnails work?

Thank you!!!!

Adding the theme support is the first step.  Displaying the thumbnails requires:

<?php the_post_thumbnail( $size, $attr ); ?>

to be inserted into the Loop.

Documentation and code samples are here:

You include the dimensions you want the thumbnail

the_post_thumbnail( array(150,150) );  

or try the defaults

the_post_thumbnail( 'medium' );  
the_post_thumbnail( 'large' );  

or set the default image size in functions.php when you add_theme_support

set_post_thumbnail_size( 150, 150, true ); // cropped = true


You can also add a class (or any other attribute)

the_post_thumbnail( array(150,150), array('class' => 'alignleft') );
