profile photo

Is there a trick to getting the profile photo to display? I have a profile photo set correctly in AD (you can see the hex code in the object attribute editor in AD Users panel), but the photo does not display in the webpart.

It is set to "show user photo" in the checkbox, and the photo placeholder does show in the webpart.

Do I HAVE to put something in "format of url of photos users"? What do I put there if I want it to load the photo that is set in the AD profile for thumbnailPhoto attribute?

Oh - I get it - it does NOT use the profile photo from AD at all.

But it WILL pull a photo from a url.
So I used /SiteAssets/avatars/{LOGIN}.png

That does work.
Maybe that's better, but I'd still rather pull from AD itself.
