  2. There is no needs to test the size of the profile picture. Just use another default image at the same position as the profile picture. When the profile picture doesn’t load for any reason, the default image will show. Otherwise the profile image will cover the default image. That is whole point why the service return 1 pixel image when there is profile picture.

  3. I’m assuming that userphoto is used for hosted SharePoint and getpersonalphoto for O365, for add-ins? However not sure if it’s a bug but in add-ins but userphoto tries to get photo from https://hostweb-{appid}.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/userphoto.aspx which doesn’t exist with the {appid} included and throws a 500 error. Thoughts?
