I would like to include user picture in Active Dirrectory to use in 2 seperate applications. How can this be done. I understand it can be done through Exchange add-in. Currently I have AD management running seperate to my Exchange Management Console. Do they need to be integrated and if so how?

I would prefer to stay away from 3rd party. Has anyone had success activating and using the AD picture placeholder attribute?
I used both ways and both succeeded... but I would advice to use the provided one above.

or, do the following:

Use Exchange Public Folders to Upload the Photos, copy all GAL contacts to the Public Folder Contacts, make the public folder contacts the default on users machines (you can use a VB script to do so).
