How it Works

In the formula the name that we defined in the Name Manger would return a cell reference because we have used a combination of Index and Match formula

The MATCH formula gives the position of the Student in the drop down.The INDEX formula finds the cell reference that contains the image of the Student using the potion provided by the Match formula.

The Named ranges linked to images returns the image correlating to the reference returned by the Index and Match formula due to this whenever you select the name of a student from the dropdown then the correlating image is updated next to it.
