I've been using a GUI program by DoveStone for conveniently uploading photos into AD for different users. SO far so good, aside from the file-size & dimension limitations.

Anyway I am submitting assistance here to someone who can help me, figure out a way, to Export a list of all users who do NOT have a photo associated with their AD account.

Is something like that at all possible? PowerShell, VbScript?

Do you know if it is using  jpegPhoto or the thumbnailPhoto attribute  

I'll assume thumbnailphoto

I like adfind but the other methods work too

http://www.joeware.net/freetools/tools/adfind/index.htm

Users with a photo

adfind -default -f "&(objectcategory=person)(objectclass=user)(thumbnailphoto=*)" samacccountname

Users without

adfind -default -f "&(objectcategory=person)(objectclass=user)(!thumbnailphoto=*)" samacccountname

See if that works for you.

Thanks

Mike
