SharePoint User Profile Sync Photo Errors

I have been monitoring FIM Client on the server that performs User profile Synchronization for SharePoint 2010/2013.  The FIM Client is found at this path:

..Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers\15.0\Synchronization Service\UIShell\miisclient.exe

I am trying to determine the root cause of the stopped-extension-dll-extension status shown next to the Full Imports:

This blog has been very helpful:

I ran the SQL query against the Profile Database and noticed that there are bad URLs in the PictureUrl column for all of the users.  We migrated this database from a 2010 system to this newer 2013 development farm.  This brought over all of the old production links to these photos.

Running this T-SQL query on the database will output the details of the PictureUrl column:

USE     [SharePoint_SA_UserProfileService_Profile]
FROM        UserProfile_Full
ORDER BY    [PreferredName] ASC

Ensure that none of the URLs point to images that do not exist or the wrong path.
