User Profile Pictures - Large/Medium Image Red X? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've got Sharepoint 2010 SP1 with June 2011 Update applied. I've done a import from AD thumbnailphoto attribute into PictureURL and run the powershell command Update-SPProfilePhotoStore -CreateThumbnailsForImportedPhotos 1 -MySiteHostLocation http://sharepoint2010/MySite/. This seemed to work great as 3 images were generated for each profile L/M/S. When I browse the User Photo library I see all the 3 images per person, however when I actually open the large or medium image's JPG or view the users profile the image just shows a red X. There isn't an issue with the small image however.

     

    Anyone come across this before?

  • Hi,

     

    Did the issue happen before you apply the SP1 and June CU?

     

    In SharePoint 2010, you can store the user profile picture on the "My Site's user profile page. This picture can be synced against the Active directory.

     

    Also bear in mind that the picture itself to be stored in AD must not exceed 10k size and not bigger than 96x96 pixels (which is automatically resized when a photo is uploaded into SharePoint).

     

    For the detailed information about Profile Picture Property "thumbnailPhoto", check out the following article:

  • Me to have problem with -CreateThumbnailsForImportedPhotos  after SP1 and CU June 2011.

    Update-SPProfilePhotoStore run without error but the <GUID>.jpg in User Photo Library remain unchanged.

    My environment:
    - SP2010 English installation with Norwegian Language Pack
    After some more testing I have experienced the following:
    - If the Mysite sitecollection is with English language it work OK.
    - If the Mysite sitecollection is with Norwegian language it fail.
    - The problem actually occurs after SP1+June CU, working OK after just SP1.
    - Have tried this in 3 different server farms with same problem.

    Anyone ?

  • I am having the same issue... SP1 and June CU...  Anyone know of a fix for this yet? Have had this working before prior to these updates

  • There is actually no fix that i know. The problem occurs only after SP1 and JuneCU

  • We used to do this programaticaly in SharePoint, and I managed to convince my client to upload photo's to AD for use in SharePoint, Lync and Exchange as it was a better solution to have them centralised.  Look like I will have add the event handlers back to the user photo's list...

    Can someone from MS please comment?  I have tested on another farm not running SP1 or June CU and this functionality works fine.

  • Hi,

    The problem is not related to SharePoint updates, it's an IE issue. IE 6.0, 7.0 and 8.0 don't support CMYK format, convert your pictures to RGB and this will work. Try to browse using firefox and you will see that it works like a charm.

  • It seems that Anders Rask has found a workaround for this problem.

    Take a look at his post here: http://sites.wizdim.com/andersrask/powershell/using-regional-locale-on-your-my-site-host-breaks-user-profile-thumbnails/

    I will test it within a couple of days.
