You need to create an image tag in your template which has the path as  
src-Attribute like this (UMN-Syntax):

<img src="[PATH_ATTRIBUTE]">

I prefer to use a small preview image and open the whole pic with a click  
in a new Window. This looks like:

<a href="[PATH_ATTRIBUTE]" target=_self><img src="[PATH_ATTRIBUTE]"  
width="200" heigth="100" alt="[PATH_ATTRIBUTE]"></a>

maybe you have to make some changes to fit this in your sourounding.
