Default Is it possible to use image files instead of points in a X-Y chart?

Dear colleagues

I work as product manager and frequently I have to prepare a X-Y chart
comparing the prices of the competitors products.

Instead of using a legend, I want show the pictures of the real products.

Actually, once the chart is ready I have copy-paste every picture.

Do you know if it is possible to do that automatically in Excel 2007 ?

Thanks

make a text box on the chart
insert the pictures of the products into the text box and add some text next
to each picture

I heard about one software which provides this facility You can choose from several different shapes and also define your own shapes by using the provided drawing tool. You can customize the size of the collage, define the dimensions of individual images and their spacing, add photo borders and more.But I forgot name.
