I used "Making Outlook Photos Work with Exchange and Outlook" see video: (http://pages.exclaimer.com/DLOPWW0813_ExchangeandOutlookSetup.html?mkt_tok=3RkMMJWWfF9wsRogu6XLZKXonjHpfsXw6%2B8uUKKg38431UFwdcjKPmjr1YIISMR0aPyQAgobGp5I5FELQrHYV7pjt6EJWw%3D%3D)
Followed instructions, but not successful in getting the pictures to appear in Outlook and GAL.  Attached screenshot shows what I did as required by video.

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

Remember to update the OAB once you're done uploading photos. This command updates the default OAB:

Update-OfflineAddressBook "Default Offline Address Book"

Note:-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

Thanks.  I'll try this out.  By the way, the pictures appears when I am using other Office 2013 products, like Word, Excel, etc.  FYI.
