Here is a link to a site that shows both older and newer version...

up to 4.6c...

4.7 and higher...

In general (From the links above)...

Transaction code: SM31

Table T588J

IMG: Personnel Mangmnt --> Personnel Administration --> Customising User Interfaces --> Change Screen Header

If you’re following the IMG path, you must now choose activity ‘Infotype Header Definition’

Note, Header structure per infotype and Header modifier activities describe which header is to be shown at the top of each infotype. The enticing ‘Passport photo’ option determines whether HRICOLFOTO or HRIEMPFOTO is used. Choosing either option is fine as long as all your other settings relate to that entry as well.

In the example below, the picture has been placed in header modifier ‘91’, which corresponds to screen header ‘91’, which is linked to Infotype 0002. You can choose to disp

All you need to do is add an entry for PERNR with Filed Type ‘PIC’. Column 75 puts the picture on the right hand side. The IT column is used to decide where to take the ‘Field Name’ value from. For PERNR, all infotypes have this field.

Don’t forget to GENERATE the screen header again.

When you see the resultant Infotype display you can double click on the picture will bring up a ‘large’ version of it.
