Great thing

This is great thing. I could easily create frontend avatar uploader on it's base.

nice

just what I needed

Beautifully simple
By , for WP 3.8.1

Have a multi-author site, and for whatever reason one of the authors' avatar was not showing up. Installed this and solved the problem on the spot. Also nice if you want to use a different avatar for your site than you have globally, or if you simply don't want a wordpress.com/Gravatar account.

UPDATE: Plugin worked well until one of the 3.8 point releases, after which something broke. Had to disable in order for some of my users to show up on site. Am now using the Avatar Manager plugin.

Thanks Jake and the 10up team - just what I was after! I don't even have to look at the code knowing that you guys made it.

Excellent plugin with one unfixed bug unfortunately
By , for WP 3.7.1

This is a great, simple plugin that I have already recommended to many developers. Unfortunately, the reason why I am giving it four stars is because the upload limit filter is not working as it should. We discussed this here:
http://wordpress.org/support/topic/use-the-max-size-filter?replies=2

With no reply from the developer. I will certainly update this review to five star rating once this problem is addressed.

Thanks!!

Simple and Perfect!

Thank-you!
By , for WP 3.7

After hours of screaming in frustration at trying to implement custom avatars, this worked beautifully and still allows a default avatar to appear for those who post without an account. It shows up in the WP toolbar with your profile name and next to comments. Thank-you so much!

Best solution for avatars
By , for WP 3.6.1

I use this on a few sites, and it is almost perfect. Everything else for avatars falls far short.
