Array of images

I want to make an array of png images so that I can use them as player portraits during the character creation scene.
The creation scene has a button for cycling through each of the portraits as it increments the png array element.
The problem I am running into is that I don’t know what type to make the array. I set the array to “MaterialSpriteElement”,
which seems the closest to what I am trying to do, and created unique materials for each png image. This seems to be the right track,
but I can’t figure out how to access the image component on the UImage element to change it when the array element is incremented.

  1. Am I making the correct array type?
  2. How do I access the image component of the UImage to make it change as the array is incremented?
  3. Is there a better way to do this?

Note: Doing all of this in blueprint.

I solved this problem by making the variable an array of Texture2D’s and calling “SetBrushFromTexture” on the Uimage.
