I have a Jabber account configured in Messages. When other people on the server change their buddy icons, the changes are pushed to my machine. I want to override their icons and force Messages to display an icon for them that I select.
From the buddy list, right-clicking on a contact brings up the context menu option "Show Contact Card". This launches Contacts. But I have a custom image set for them and Messages is not displaying it.
I recall iChat having an option to specify using a custom image rather than the pushed image, but I can't find anything here.
This is for Messages version 7.0.1 (3314) on OS X 10.8.2 (12C60).
