Strange, I thought that photos for missionaries were automatically provided by the missionary department since each missionary has to provide a photo with their application. Every one of the missionaries from our ward has a photo in the directory and I didn't put any of them in so I assume the missionary department must have.

In any case, you can't upload their photo for them. You can check with the mission and see if they can get it taken care of.

The mission is responsible for updating photos for full-time missionaries assigned to your unit. All you can do is talk to the mission office and ask them to make sure the photos are properly set for the missionaries. They do have the photos that came with the mission application, so it's just a matter of someone in the mission office uploading the photos to the right system (some missions may also choose to take a different photo).

With the mission in our area, we have found the mission to be 100% reliable in setting up the photos for the missionaries, so fortunately it's not a concern for us.
