How to generate links to local images


I understand that images can be inserted into a particular layout.  But can the displayed image be generated according to another field value in the layout?

Take the Document Library template as an example and say this was used for multi-format files (documents and also images and audio). If you go to a particular record in this database it shows information about the file (name, when added, project etc.), including a file path. Is there a way to display the file based on the file path given? Or create a link to it?

(I am messing around with putting files on a locally hosted webserver, and then linking to these in a Web Viewer on the Layout. But I thought there may be a an easier way like the one outlined above.)
