Back in august 2011 I wrote about a utility called AD Photo Edit which allows you to upload your personal picture into Active Directory. Today I want to share with you another utility I came across called ADUserTile.
ADUserTile checks if you have a picture stored within the Active Directory thumbnailPhoto attribute and sets that picture as your profile picture within Windows 7 so it becomes visible at the logon screen and the Windows Desktop.
ADUserTile is free and can be downloaded from here. Also read documentation here on how to integrate ADUserTile within a GPO so that the tool runs automatically at user logon.

I have a solution that works great for both Windows 8 and Windows 10.
It uses PowerShell to fetch the Active Directory data and then sets it as the local profiles picture.
