I will assume that your table contains the following info:

TABLE
ID     GENDER    BLOB/IMAGE
1      Female     girl
2      Male         boy

//Your New Formula Field (@ShowPicture)
if {TABLE.Gender} = "Male" then
   {Table.boy}
else if {TABLE.Gender} ="Female"
   {Table.girl}

OR...
If you have the boy/girls pics embedded in the report then you could set a suppression formula for them.
Right click the graphic.
Format Graphic...
Click the Suppress formula x-y button.
For girl put
TABLE.Gender = "Male"
For boy put
TABLE.Gender ="Female"
