We have photos on AD accounts. I dont want students to see them. I have tried all the below, it makes it so you cant see photos in the GAL but if you right click the user and add to contacts it shows the photo still.
Any ideas how i can stop this please?

Q. How can I disable GAL Photos in Outlook?
A. If you don't upload photos to the thumbnailPhoto attribute in Active Directory, they will not be displayed. If you have applications that must use the thumbnailPhoto attribute, but don't want to have the photos displayed in Outlook 2010, you can disable them for Outlook by using the DoNotDisplayPhotograph registry value or the Do not display contact photo group policy setting. The setting is available via the OutlookSocialConnector.adm administrative template. For details and a download link, see How to manage the Outlook Social Connector by using Group Policy.
This reg key - HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\C ommon TurnOffPhotograph=1
And i also changed the options maunaully in outlook with the same result.

I have tested both and I don't see the picture, as expected, I will delete the OST and test again
Works as expected, what CU do you have on the clients?
what does CU mean?
I cant see the pics in the GAL only when i right click > add to contacts from a GAL contact.
Cumulative Update for Office
I added the user from the GAL to my contacts in Outlook and it still doesnt show.
On Exchange we are bang upto date. I didnt know they had CU for office.
What do you mean?
Is it sorted?
Did you apply the latest CU?
We are already at the lates CU for exchange.
For Office not Exch,
State which one you are on both for Office & Exch
