I would like to add a picture to a Contact by uploading it to the Files related list and have the file picked up automatically, i.e. if we use the same file name for each Contact, "ContactPhoto.jpg." We are a nonprofit using Salesforce Classic.

I was thinking of:

  1. List item creating a custom formula field to look up the File by name (what do I query?)
  2. Grab/store document (record) ID (do I need to store this?)
  3. Use record ID to display image in a text formula field:
   <img src="&'"'&"/servlet/servlet.FileDownload?file=Image_Document_ID__c"&'"'&" alt="&'"'&"Name"&'"'&" border="&'"'&"0"&'"'&"/>
