I have established Picture mapping so it can be feed from AD. However, pictures are not being populated. I followed this article Adding Pictures to Active Directory and Show in SharePoint 2013just to confirm my setup is proper and made sure everything is exact. see setup below

After this setting it looked like below. enter image description here

FIM status : still missing thumbnailphoto attribute enter image description here

  • Yes sir. First I ran Full Sync yesterday and then update-spprofilephotostore this morning. I am using "SharePoint Active Directory Import" for Synchronization Settings (which is really faster than SP Profile Sync. May 13, 2015 at 14:13

Oh You are using the Active Directory Import. You are out of luck. ADI import does not support the complex property import. Profile Picture fall under the Complex property so it does not supported.

We had the same issue and we switched to UPS after couple of months troubleshooting with MSFT support.

The AD import option does not automatically synchronize photos from Active Directory to SharePoint Server 2013. If you need to import photos you must use profile synchronization. For more information, see Microsoft technet article

After starting UPSS, Do iisreset. then start full profile sync. Hope this helps.
