I think you need to provide an example spreadsheet, because whilst I am slightly clearer, I don't know in what format you currently have the information.

If the photos are embedded in the Excel file like this:
examplethen you won't be able to link to them.  Even linking to the associated cell will produce no results.

If the photos had the ID value in their filename somewhere, you might be able to create a link to that file and have the image displayed.
