    the upper right hand corner
  7. Click tools
  8. Click options
  9. Click on my picture
  10. Click show a picture from a web address
  11. Paste your URL from LinkedIn
  12. Click Connect to Picture

That is it!  You will now have a picture on your Lync, especially useful when you are federated withcontacts outside of your company.  Who doesn’t like a face with a name?
