I believe only container fields with global storage enabled will show in find mode.
it wouldn't be appropriate to show anything because of the context - find mode.
However, if you have a Global container on the layout, that image will persist in find mode.
It does not display as a global field either. I am calling from a
relationship, where on a preferences page the user inserts their company
image to be displayed on layouts including a sign-in page in find mode...
Maybe the relationship makes it difficult. It displays with the
relationship in browse mode just fine, but not in find mode...... AHHHHH.

Thanks for the reply guys, It does not display as a global field either.

Not to be contrary, but I tested the concept (in FMP 14) across relationships, and in an unrelated table; and it worked for me (i.e. the image showed in find mode). I'm in single-user mode - that might be pertinent.
So, if you're using FM Server, consider this: the data in global fields reverts when you end your session with the server. The server's "default" global data will be what it was the last time the database was opened in single-user mode.

All the input I can have is important. I am local on my MacBook Pro. I have
a preferences table where the image is inserted into a container. Then via
a simple Match ID using the number one in both tables, I insert the field
from the related table. It shows in browse, preview not in fine. While in
find mode I am running a script which analyses the input data and moves the
user in one direction or another. Do I need to stop the script and trigger
s new one maybe?
I am using FMP 13

It might be the difference between v.13 and 14.
I thought that it was no longer necessary to create any links between tables in order to access any global field.
Anyhoo, I'd just ask you to verify that the "number 1" key is defined as a Global Number in both tables. Also, just ensure that the logo field in the preferences table is defined to have global storage.
Other than that, you might just stay in Browse mode and use the 3 input fields available in the Show Custom Dialog script step to gather info from the user (the info you need for the find). The input fields you use there should also be defined as global.

Thanks I will verify all of that. Global everywhere except the user fields (not sure why)
