I'm running this command in powershell Update-SPProfilePhotoStore -CreateThumbnailsForImportedPhotos 1 -MySiteHostLocation http://mysite.mydomain.local It's executing successfully but the profile pictures are not updating.

I have also tried using this Bulk Upload and Update User Profile Photos in SharePoint 2013. but no updating and no error.

Assistance guys?

    Have you set the import picture URL mapping and run a full profile sync? You should run the command only after that Jan 26, 2017 at 14:56

    In your MySite, do you have GUID'ed pictures (file names)? It would be located in the Profile Pictures folder in https://<mySiteHostUrl/User%20Photos/

My Mistake is that I was using SharePoint Active Directory Import to import picture property instead of sharePoint Profile Synchronization. The question was already answered here Importing the Profile Picture from AD using ADI & ADFS
