WP User Avatar

Use any image from your WordPress Media Library as a custom user avatar. Add your own Default Avatar.

WordPress currently only allows you to use custom avatars that are uploaded through Gravatar. WP User Avatar enables you to use any photo uploaded into your Media Library as an avatar. This means you use the same uploader and library as your posts. No extra folders or image editing functions are necessary.
