4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade active-directory-photos -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade active-directory-photos -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)

Screenshot of CodeTwo Active Directory Photos

CodeTwo Active Directory Photos will let you upload photographs to Active Directory and manage them easily using a light and super-intuitive user interface. This freeware application has been designed to make managing scores of users' images straightforward and ultra-fast. Setting up thousands of Active Directory users' photographs is just a matter of cooking soft boiled eggs, which really makes this program stand out in the crowd.

Why would I need it to add photos to Active Directory?

You may need to add photographs to Active Directory to show them in internal Outlook messages, display in Outlook's contacts and Global Address List (GAL), or to add them to internal or outbound email. Letting people see each other's faces while corresponding adds more human touch to the communication. Sometimes it seems to be the only way for some people to know who is who in their own company. What is more, adding users' images to external messages makes your mail look more professional and also lets your customers see who they are corresponding with.

Key features

  • Fluent management of thousands of users' pictures in Active Directory
  • Ability to import and export Active Directory photos
  • Single or bulk photo actions
  • Resizing photographs
  • Automatic photo size adjustment to 100kb (or less) to comply with Active Directory requirements
  • Lets you display Active Directory photos in Outlook 2016, 2013 and 2010 emails, contacts and GALs
  • Lets you display Active Directory photos in SharePoint, Lync, and Skype for Business
  • Compatible with CodeTwo Exchange Rules Pro. See how to add images from Active Directory to automatic email signatures in Exchange

Supported platforms

  • Windows Server 2016(1) / 2012 R2 / 2012 / 2008 R2 / 2008 / 2003 R2 / 2003
  • Windows 10(2) / 8.1 / 8 / 7 / Vista / XP SP3
  • Small Business Server 2008
  • Support for 32 / 64 bit platforms.
  • If the program doesn't work after upgrading to Windows 10 from Windows 7 or 8.1, you need to reinstall it.
