You must use a web accessible URL.

Trying to paste it from DropBox won’t work, and neither will supplying a DropBox direct link (if such a thing exists), unless it’s been declared as being publicly shared to anyone who has the URL.

The procedure would be…

  1. Create a custom field of the type “image,”
  2. Store the images on a web server accessible from the network that Manager resides on (so if it’s a local installation, it can be on either a public web server or on one within your own local network),
  3. For each employee, specify the image in HTML notation;
    <img src="http://yourserver/yourimage.jpg" />
