[if file="__IMG_DIR__/[item-field category].jpg"]

		<img src="__IMG_DIR__/vendors/[item-field category].jpg">
	show text

which would work if you place logos in vendors/vendorname.jpg

Alternately, you can do a lookup in another table..

code   vendor    logo     etc...
123    shwinn    shw.gif
124    mongoose  mng.jpg

SELECT logo WHERE  products.category = vendor_info.vendor

You know what i mean?
