When you create a new player on the Football Manager 2019 data editor, how do you add a photo to go with that player?
When you create a new player on the Football Manager 2019 data editor, how do you add a photo to go with that player?

Start your new career and then find his Unique ID. To do so make sure the screen ID tickbox in the below screenshot is ticked, and you'll find his UID in the titlebar:

https://i.imgur.com/0yPuoXt.png

Then follow the instructions in this post, to assign a photo (which must be in png format) to the player.
Could I not find the unique ID of the newly created player via the data editor?

Players created in custom databases have a random UID in-game, not the one displayed in the pre-game data editor.

It will not necessarily be the same as the one s/he will have in the game, especially if you are running a number of other editor data files at the same time. The best way to know the right UID is to check it in-game. You can add graphics at any point, even after starting a new game, so that shouldn't be an issue

That’s really good to know. If you start a new game, will the player ID change? If so, does that mean I have to add the new player face again?

It could change and, then again, it may not. If it's the former, you'd need to change the config file with the new UID, yes.
