contacts photos RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to put a photo on my contacts where the little icon is? It looks like it will let you, then it won't. Please tell me how to do it if it is possible. Thank you-

  • Which application and which icon are you talking about? If this is Active Directory, you might be able to use either the thumbnailPhoto or thumbnailLogo attributes. These are used to save photos, but I believe you must code an application to use these. Maybe some other applications can use these attributes if you point to them.
