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 ( seems to help but what would be the best solution. Of cource I do not want to store ad password.

    Accepted Solution

    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.
