Edit icons: Can I use a photo as an icon for a specific person?

I would like to present a group of people on a DM topic map (a sort of organization chart). It should contain photos of the people. So it would be cool to edit every single persons icon and use the photo as the icon. I couldn't find out if this is already possible and if so, how to do it.
Please tell me if it works and how!

I think a general approach to replace the default icon with a thumbnail of a photo or image on the instance level for the canvas would be cool for all kinds of objects.

No, Silke, for the moment individual topic icons are not possible.

Although the DM icons *are* customizable by the user this happens on a per-type basis, not per-instance. This means you can deploy a custom "Person" icon *but* all persons will still look the same.

I agree, per-instance icons is a useful feature in general and it will be realized in the future.
This issue is addressed by ticket #86 already.

Thanks for your +1 on this feature request!
