    Try manually syncing again, if your pics are in your folder on you Mac, should restore to your phone.

    lower right hand side in iTunes, "Sync" or "Apply" if you've made changes.

    Click on your phone in left control panel first of coarse.

    O I thought you meant manually syncing my contacts with the cloud. I'll try the iTunes sync again but I think I did it before.

    now I'm talking about the contact pics in the contact app,not pics in the photo app...

    The iTunes sync didn't help. This is pretty weird and I don't know what happened...

    how about try the facebook app, that can sync your friend photo to your contact.

    Yes, but as I said, it's a separate option on the phone in regards to syncing contacts

    fixed...I guess it was a weird glitch but an update on how to fix it if anyone else has the same problem.

    Turn you sync off for contacts in iCloud. Delete contacts off your device (scary I know ).Then resync your contacts with iCloud. I tried this without deleting contacts from my device and it didn't work so you have to delete them from device.

    My bad...I misread that but I do have photo stream on also.

    Thanks for all that responded to this post.
