The MySite Profile Pictures are not showing up within a sharepoint contact list

    Question

  • We have mulitple farms with farm1 housing our MySite Profile pages.  When our staff add their picture to their profile page, that image shows up throughout farm1 (Both people search and contact lists).  The other farms point to the mysite of frame1 and also display the pictures within people search but we can't seem to get those farms to display the pictures within the contact lists (a standard SharePoint contact list).  Is there a way to get the lists to pull in the profile pictures?

  • The out-of-box-behavior for contact list is:

     

    If you connect it to outlook, and open the contact card in outlook, you can upload a picture for the contact. The uploaded picture is then synchronized to the contact list as attachment.

     

    You may need customization if you want to synchronize the attachment in contact list with user profile.

  • Hi,

    Whether the account you use to access images in farm1 from other farms have sufficient access level?

    Are you using any kind of replication to bring user profiles between the farms? If yes then check out if you have selected the image as a replicable property ornot.

    Put the image URL in a browser window from other farm and try to access and see if it shows up or not.

    IN the profile page right click on image and then select Image info. Check the URL it is showing up is correct or not.

     

    I hope this will help you out.

     

    Thanks,
