One way to do this is to go to your picture library, and create a new lookup field to a document library with the Name field selected.  Upload your documents to the document library making sure to populate the 'Name' field. When you upload a picture, the next page you can select a document from the document library.  You will have to modify your picture library view [styles] to display the documents with the pictures.
