Adding custom symbols/ icons for points on a map

Hello! I am trying to use images for my point layers on a map. I am using lat/long and would like various animal pictures to appear instead of a shape. I have seen other post explains this but it is confusing to me, does anyone know of a video that explains this and/or can give a dummys explanation. Thank you much, student trying to rock!

Hi Harrison 

Yes, you can use your own images for point layers on map. Here i will give brief explanation. First select map and click on the layer, and drill down the point layer. And you can see the Size&shape button and select size&shape button. And drill down the shape there you can see new option image. select the image and upload the image from media and insert. Once insert completed it will display image on the map.

For quick look: select map -> click layer -> drill-down point layer  -> click on size&shape -> drill-down shape -> select image -> click on image icon -> upload media and select your own image from you system.
