Setting Microsoft Lync Profile Picture with a custom picture on OneDrive

Need to set Microsoft Lync Profile Picture to a web address of your own custom picture easily? Here's how to use an image located in your  OneDrive and set to be your Lync account "My Picture".

Note: Lync profile pics should be 72 px (w)  by 108px (h) and < 30kb.
In OneDrive, right-click on the picture you are interested in adding to your Lync profile picture, and choose 
Embed. (I know example below is a file, same process)

This will bring up the Embed pop-up.
Highlight and copy the embed HTML code. Paste into text editor.

<iframe frameborder="0" height="120" scrolling="no" src="https://onedrive.live.com/embed?cid=8F99649728BEB2F3&resid=8F99649728BEB2F3%212780&authkey=AHGTayWelaWRDMA" width="98"></iframe>
Extract the link, and you will get link look like this:
Replace embed? to download? See link below after replace:
Now you can paste this link into the "Show a picture from a web address" in Lync 2010 or "Show a picture from a website" in Lync 2013 for Windows. Click "Connect to Picture" button will result in connected to picture successfully.
