Our Outlook clients see the pics in the gal but when they create a contacts in the contacts folder it is looking to this first so no picture.  I can copy the picture there and its OK but I am wondering if there is a setting to keep all the pics on the gal.  Thanks

As the Global Address List and each individual Users Contact Lists are seperate this is expected Behavior.

"wondering if there is a setting to keep all the pics on the gal"

The way to do this would be to have the users to simply use the Contacts in the GAL.
Theres no real reason to have a contact in a GAL and in your Contacts folder as well.
My Contacts folder is meant to be used as a Personal Contacts List seperate of the GAL
Which is why if using images, you need to re-add it after the contact is created

You can't do it isn't an answer.  People don't care that you shouldn't do it they want a result.  I have show them how to add to contacts from the Gal.  They are ok with that for now. So I solved my own problem.
