@Markkyboy Could you convert your comment to an answer and accept it, then close this question again. (to have a question closed as answered with a real answer)

apologies @simo - I'm not well at the moment, being very forgetful with forum actions. Thanks for prompt.

the feature is already there my friend, if I understand you correctly. Open the People app, select a contact from the ABCD list. In the next window, you'll see a box near the top left corner with a + in it, tap that and your gallery opens, select an image, crop it if needed, apply it, job done.

When that contact calls you, you won't see a perfectly clear image, as Sailfish applies a mask over the image so you can read the call details - however, using Patchmanager ( from Openrepos, you can apply a patch from Coderus that allows the caller image in it's full glory. (
