    Thank you so much!
    I had been looking for a way to do this for so long and had nearly given up hope on it. Very, very helpful.

    simple if you know how to do it, but insanely difficult if you do not know where to start looking.

    Thanks so much!

    Thanks for this. Not only did it work perfectly, but I was also able to learn a little about Visual Studio so thanks for that too!

    does this update the user account in active directory, or just the local machine instance?

    No, it does not update any information on active directory. You can refer to on how to update pictures in ad.
