LDAP with JPEG Photos

Category : Technology/LDAPEnablerForMountainLion201.txt

I've finally figured out how to get the LDAP Server to accept JPEG photos (tagged by the jpegPhoto attribute). Yay!

You will never understand how long I struggled, how much pain I had to endure :-)


And, more importantly, I've figured out how to get these photos to show up in the Contacts app when the LDAP record is displayed :


And LDAP Enabler works with all the drag and drop goodness we expect from the Mac, when you're matching photos to people. 

LDAP only supports (only?) the JPEG format. So drag and drop files with a .jpeg or .jpg extension.

LDAP Enabler for Moumtain Lion 2.0.1 is available for download now.
