Hello Jonathon Lake,
See my approach on your question in the attached workbook (you'll need Tableau Desktop 2018.2)
This might be a long and not ideal workaround but here are the detailed steps below in case it would work for you:
Step 1 - Have your pictures ready
- Save all your pictures in your Shapes repositiory folder (C:\Users\username\Documents\My Tableau Repository\Shapes)
- Ensure all your pictures' name match your data source picture names too. (For example, in my sample data source, Picture A is the same in my repository folder and in my data source)
Step 2 - Build your view to be compatible with Custom Shapes
- Build your view as desired > Change the Marks type to Shapes > drag and drop the dimension that corresponds to your pictures' names on Shape.
- Assign all pictures to the relevant Shape. This is called "Custom Shapes" (view the information in the Help Topic here)
- Note: you won't be able to have the picture on the left. The picture will appear on the right side.
Step 3 - Filter your view
- In the view, right-click the dimension you wish to filter and select Show Filter.
- On the filter itself, choose the option you prefer. In my example, I used Single Value Dropdown. (And I filter by picture)
Hope that helps a bit! Have a great day
