If you need to save the photos of all contacts in a contact folder in Outlook, please try below VBA.

1. Open the specified contact folder where you will save all contact photos, and press Alt + F11 keys to open the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

2. Click Insert > Module, and then paste below VBA code into the new module window.

VBA: Batch save photos of all contacts in Outlook

Sub SaveAllContactsPhotos()
Dim xNameSpace As NameSpace
Dim xFdrContacts As MAPIFolder
Dim xItemContact As ContactItem
Dim xAttachments As Outlook.Attachments
Dim xAttach As Attachment
Dim xItems As Outlook.Items
Dim xName As String
Dim xPath, xFileName As String
Set xFdrContacts = Application.ActiveExplorer.CurrentFolder
On Error Resume Next
Set xShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
Set xFolder = xShell.BrowseForFolder(0, "Select a folder:", 0, strStartingFolder)
If Not TypeName(xFolder) = "Nothing" Then
Set xFolderItem = xFolder.self
xFileName = xFolderItem.Path & "\"
Else
xFileName = ""
Exit Sub
End If
For I = 1 To xFdrContacts.Items.Count
Set xItemContact = xFdrContacts.Items(I)
Set xAttachments = xItemContact.Attachments
For Each xAttach In xAttachments
If xAttach.FileName = "ContactPicture.jpg" Then
xName = xItemContact.FirstName & xItemContact.LastName
xPath = xFileName & xName & ".jpg"
xAttach.SaveAsFile (xPath)
End If
Next
Next
Set xShell = Nothing
End Sub

Note: This VBA will save all contact photos as JPG images. For saving as other image type, please change the .jpg in the code xPath = xFileName & xName & ".jpg" to other extension names, such as .png, .gif, etc.

3. Press the F5 key or the Run button to run this VBA.

4. In the popping out Browse For Folder dialog box, please select the destination folder you will save the photos into, and click the OK button. See screenshot:

Now all contact photos in the selected contact folder are saved as individual .jpg (or another image type as you specified) images in bulk.
