2013 MySite Photos Blurry


  • We are testing 2013 migration from 2010.  The profile photos are now larger in 2013 when you visit someones mysite.  The profile pictures are now blurry.  We import from AD and the size in AD is 96x96 (use code two AD to import)  How should we be loading the images so they are clean?  Especially if they are coming from the 2010 environment.

  • AD is a rubbish source for photos, as stated they only go up to 96x96 pixels, which is never going to look good when blown up to 300x300 (2013 default for large).

    In 2010 the image sizes at least matched up in SharePoint to AD, the medium sized image was 96x96. In 2013 it's worse as all three images need to be re-scaled.

    If you want the pictures to be clean then you'll need to re-import them from a source image 300x300 or larger. This blog may be of interest:

  • I did read that, but I didn't see a good 'answer' other than 'If Microsoft were to integrate Image Renditions with the User Photos, the whole process will become much more robust for all SharePoint consumers. I’m crossing my fingers!'

    Is there a way to reconfigure the Profile pages to show the 2010 size 144?

  • Nope. Not going to happen/work, they will be re-sized.

  • Please try with this JavaScript which will find the img tags inside the default SharePoint tags , will help you to change the S Thumb images to L Thumb or M Thumb images.

    Map this JavaScript to master page. 

    $('.ms-profilepicture img').each(function () { 
                $(this).attr('src', $(this).attr('src').replace('SThumb.jpg', 'LThumb.jpg')); 

     $('.ms-peopleux-userImgDiv img').each(function () { 
                $(this).attr('src', $(this).attr('src').replace('SThumb.jpg', 'LThumb.jpg')); 

    Hope it works for you...!! enjoy... :)
