Creating ability to replace image in PDF through Reader, is it possible?

I was told that LiveCycle is what I need to create a PDF with this ability.  Im creating a general flyer where the client wants to be able to replace the name, phone, and headshot with new people when they come on board.  The text part I can do but dont have a clue how to get started with a way to have them replace the photo, how would I go about this?  It would be a plus if it would also resize a photo to the needed size because the clients are not very computer or design literate so anything to make things easier on them.  Also I assume they would be using Acrobat Reader as well, so this would need to work with that

With Designer you can add an image field.

This field is also supported by Reader.

Users simply have to click onto the field to open a file browser where they can select an image file, which then is importetd into the image field.

You can set up the image field to fit the imported images to the image field area.

Is there something more to it?  That almost seems too easy.  When I draw an image field and view as PDF, I dont see anything.  I click in the area where it would be located and nothing happens.  Also, I have all of a half day experience in LiveCycle! :-P
