1 Answer 1


you can replace the image in layout folder!


C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\15\TEMPLATE\IMAGES

There you find four placeholder pictures

  • personplaceholder.32x32x32.png
  • personplaceholder.48x48x32.png
  • personplaceholder.96x96x32.png
  • personplaceholder.200x150x32.png

Replace this pictures with your customized pictures. Be sure, that you do that on all WFEs in your Farm!

    And keep in mind they can be overwritten when you're updating your farm...

  • Just needed to use this today. The "48" is replaced with "42", at least in 15.0.4849.1000 :) Oct 30, 2017 at 15:25
