    Thanks for this update. I do have another question: about bulk uploading images (and adding the correct metadata): Is there any documentation on how to add metadata to more than one picture at the time? We have 1.000nds of pictures and it would be very nice if we can add metadata in one go.

    Any suggestions for this issue?

    Hi, thanks for this thorough explanation, it's really helpful! I'm trying to upload my user's profile images programatically using Peter Holpar's code : pholpar.wordpress.com/…/how-to-upload-a-user-profile-photo-programmatically and got it working in a test environment. It won't however work in the production environment – completely new install etc of SharePoint Server 2010.

    I have all permissions, and I get the red cross with text 'User Photo'. If I right click on 'Properties' of this non-image, it has the correct pictureURL.

    I've been stuck on this problem for ages and any help would be GREATLY appreciated. In my code the URL values are correct, as well as the image paths, etc…all seem fine.

    Thank you!!

    What I can see you don't maintain aspect ratio resizing profile photo. At least in forums where small thumbnail is used. My original 146×220 sized photo becomes 32×32 and I look a little flat.

    Probably there is some feature to turn on?

    I have a question regarding image file extension. Does thumbnail feature in SP2010 supports other image types?  For example, PNG, BMP or GIF.

    Is it possible to customize the size of those thumbnails? For ex. a company set the profile container to 189×189, therefore they want large thumbnails to be that size. Is that posible? How? Thanks!

    I have all permissions, and I get the red cross with text 'User Photo'. If I right click on 'Properties' of this non-image, it has the correct pictureURL.

    I want to ask you one question. please give me any suggestion.

    I want to put validation when users upload profile image.

    some users upload portrate image and some users upload landscape image.

    so, i want users to upload only one (landscape image or portrate image) and want to make validation for that.

    any suggestion… it is possible?

    Thanks

    My question:  I get that 3 thumbnail sizes are provided however, is there a way of limiting the size (mb) of the thumbnail chosen.  Does the thumbnail size affect the rest of the environment & document uploads etc…?

    Cheers
