In my Marshmallow (Galaxy S5), you must go to the galleria, press the picture you want to put for someones contact. Then press those three dots on the upper right corner and finally there you have the option.

How do you get rid of a contact picture? I don't want to replace it with anything, I just want there to be no picture. I remove it, but then it always comes back when the phone restarts.

You have to save your contact from sim card to phone to be able to assign a picture
