Untested, but (in 2.18 and possibly earlier) you can create Filled Marker styles with a raster image fill, and the source of the raster can be data driven. Worth a try?

Cheers,

Dear QGIS users,

I am switching over more and more from ArcGIS to QGIS. Many features are really much nicer. But now I am needing a feature that displays small pictures (pictograms) at all points of a point shapefile. Similar to diagrams, but these specific diagrams are already available in PNG (or JPG) format. An attribute of the point shapefile contains the filenames of the pictures. I can display these pictures interactively point by point using either eVIs Browser or Action, even HTML maptip. But I want to see them all together on the map like other point symbols (or diagrams).

Any idea? Some existing script or plugin that I can use as a starter? Or maybe I am just missing an existing feature?

Thank you!

Sepp
