  • Instead of PS you can use an app for that task - its easier and more comfortable with graphical UI.
    Oh - and it's free: CodeTwo Active Directory Photos

  • How you do it depends on what release of Powershell you're using and whether you have the ActiveDirectory module in the machine.

    Import-Module ActiveDirectory

    $photo=[byte[]](Get-Content"C:\directory\XXX.jpg"-Encodingbyte) Set-ADUserUserID-Replace@{thumbnailPhoto=$photo}

    If you don't have the ActiveDirectory module, and you don't want to depend on having the EMS on the machine doing the work, you can use something like this:

    $username = "XXXXXX"
    $jpgfile = "XXXXXX.jpg"
    $dom = [System.DirectoryServices.ActiveDirectory.Domain]::GetCurrentDomain()
    $root = $dom.GetDirectoryEntry()
    $search = [System.DirectoryServices.DirectorySearcher]$root
    $search.Filter = "(&(objectclass=user)(objectcategory=person)(samAccountName=$username))"
    $result = $search.FindOne()
    if ($result -ne $null)
    	$user = $result.GetDirectoryEntry()
    	[byte[]]$jpg = Get-Content $jpgfile -encoding byte
    	$user.put("thumbnailPhoto",  $jpg )
    	Write-Host $user.displayname " updated"
    else {Write-Host $struser " Does not exist"}
