After upgrading from Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2013, I noticed that users can upload a picture through Outlook Web App.

Is it possible to do this through Outlook 2010 client?
Do I need to enable a global feature to allow this?
What would the steps be?

Did you mean enable thumbnail picture in Outlook?

If it's the case, then you have to do the powershell in your Exchange servers. Here is the command:

Import-RecipientDataProperty -Identity username -Picture -FileData ([Byte[]]$(Get-Content -Path "C:\image1.jpg" -Encoding Byte -ReadCount 0))

yes, but I am looking for the ability of the user to do it through Outlook 2010.  I can't give them access to powershell.  They can do it through OWA, but would prefer to have them do it through Outlook 2010, if possible.

HR wouldn't want my users to do that themselves, we, admins, must do that. Else, they would upload anything and it'll look messy. You don’t want any offensive pictures displayed in the GAL.

It has to be done via OWA or powershell command. I don't think they can do that via Outlook client.
