What is User Profile ?

A personal profile about each user includes properties such as a user’s title, e-mail, distri-bution list membership, and contact details. It is typically imported by SharePoint from a directory such as Active Directory, but it can also be manually created directly inside SharePoint. User profiles can be customized in SharePoint to include additional details, such as birthday and interests. Personal profile are used throughout SharePoint Server 2007 to disseminate or target information to users, help users locate colleagues with sim-ilar interests, and return search results on people.Its available for MOSS only.

i am a new SharePoint admin and wondering if you might know how to upload photos to the user profiles for each user. I can see where it can be done from the user side, but want to manage this myself. Any ideas?
