Upload the images as Documents(in classic) or Files(in lightning) and create a formula field to show the image in the field.

Amazing thanks so much!  Quick question, is it possible to vie the images in each view, both classic and lightning using either of the two methods?

You could also consider making a Rich Text field.  In this one field you can have images, as well as formatted text, and links too.  All in one field!
