Where are the Active Directory profile pictures located?

All,
I have synced AD objects from Active Directory to Office 365. Some AD profile pics are not synced because their sizes are large (lager than 10 KB).  I would like reduce these photos' size but I don't know where these photos located. Could you please assist me how to find the AD profile photos?
Thanks

if you are expecting a file path then there isn't one. Once uploaded they are stored within the user object in the active directory database.

If they have been imported in the standard way through exchange then they shouldn't have uploaded if they are more than 10kb i.e. the import would have failed

Thumb nail photo is attribute in the schema. Its Range-Upper value set to default 100KB. You need to change it to 10kb by editing schema.

The thumbnailPhoto attribute itself supports photos of up to 100K, but the Import-RecipientDataProperty cmdlet in Exchange 2010 allows you to import only 10K or smaller files.
