How To Set Pictures For Active Directory Users With PowerShell

Using PowerShell, we can set user pictures in Active Directory. We can download the pictures, resize them to the recommended 96x96px dimensions and then modify the attribute thumbnailPhoto to get the picture attached to any user account! Using just a PowerShell script, we can update the entire company’s user photos if we choose to do so.

In this video, we’ll go over how to perform all of the tasks necessary to get an image attached to the Active Directory user account.

Prerequisites include: - Active Directory domain - A Windows Server 2012 domain controller or later - Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) package installed - At least one Active Directory user without a thumbnail picture set.
