Hello. SharePoint foundation does not allow user profile synchtonization yet I would like to list all active directory users. SPPrincipalInfo helps, but does not give me user image. What would be best  way to get image from Active Directory.

This (http://adamprescott.net/2012/08/30/retrieve-active-directory-user-photos-in-c/) seems to help but what would be the best solution. Of cource I do not want to store ad password.

Not possible out of the box with Foundation.  The user should be able to update their image manually by clicking their name (upper right) - My Settings - Edit, but this is on a per site basis.
