I now have a way to script bulk loading of photos from Sims into SharePoint, for example to enable the use of the Learning Gateway My Children web part.
The script is in 2 parts. First extract the photos from Sims using our free Photo Export tool
PhotoExport.exe simsuser simspassword outputFolder /names:mapping.csv
where mapping.csv is a csv file mapping admission numbers to Active Directory login names
The use the PowerShell script in my last blog entry Using PowerShell to Bulk Upload Files to SharePoint to upload the images to SharePoint.
You could even set up a scheduled task to automatically upload them on a predefined schedule.
