I finally resolved this. Elliott had given me the correct direction but being limited in my php ability I failed to see my obvious mistake. The correct code can be found in the Documents HERE at the bottom of the page.
Basically it shows an example of displaying a custom field named “author_badge” which means all you have to do is replace author_badge with your actual custom field name. I only replaced it in the places where “author_badge” appeared in orange type. I finally replaced all instances of author_badge with my own image name and voila, the picture appeared.
Hopefully this helps other script kiddies. Thank you, Elliot for an amazing plugin.
