Hello,

I've been searching around for a way to create a staff directory on our SharePoint 2010 Foundation set up by Synchronizing that list with Active Directory and preferably pull the thumbnail photo from AD.

I've found a few web parts that look promising but they appear to require SharePoint 2010 Server for the synchronization settings that aren't a part of Foundation so any suggestions or ideas would be ideal!

The User Profile Service not available in Foundation, which is your main problem;

A prior answer on EE has good links, but I think wont work for Foundation;

Though this is interesting, a Foundation workaround using Powershell. Photos not included!
