5 thoughts on “Import User Pictures from Active Directory to SharePoint 2010 My Site

  • Hi,

    Profile pictures are not importing to sharepoint. I could see either cross mark or blank photo and also i could see only GUID’s in user photo list in my site host. I ran the full sync and also ran the update profile store command but still the same.

    Photos exists in sync database but not in profile database. Please help me in fixing this.

    Thanks in Advance.

  • My pixelation was due to the file that I uploaded onto AD being in .png format. My advice is always use .jpgs.

  • Hi

    I have a question. I wrote a similar import script which updated my AD user properties and also the thumbnail photo from my on prem SharePoint 2013 intranet. Did the UPS but noticed I hadn’t got any photos displayed in Mysites. I had ran the Update-SPProfilePhotoStore but I had forgotten the ‘optional’ -CreateThumbnailsForImportedPhotos $true. One thing I have noticed with this parameter is the (L) photo stored on mysites is very pixelated. Has anyone noticed this? I will need to fix either update photos in profile directly with PS script or somehow run the Update-SPProfilePhotoStore but without the optional param. Any advice would be welcome as I have loads to do..

  • Hello there,
    thank you for keeping up. After doing this, all the pics are well synced from AD into Sharpeoint Mysite, & appears on users’ profile, but in search we can’t see these pictures for some of the users (most actually)
