AD Photos allows you to import photos into Active Directory for use with Outlook, Exchange, Office 365, Sharepoint and AD Phonebook. With AD Photos you can import single photos or multiple photos into either the thumbnailPhoto attribute or the jpegPhoto attribute.
Many companies already have photos of users for ID cards etc, it makes a lot of sense to store these photos in Active Directory.
Allow your users to put a face to a name, below you can see Outlook displaying the photo read from the thumbnailPhoto attribute. You’ll find photos are used throughout Outlook and Office 365, you’ll find them shown in the Global Address List, Meeting Requests, Contacts etc.
