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:

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

Simple and Perfect!

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

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

Up and running in seconds

After struggling for 40 minutes with another plugin that lets you add_local_avatar, I gave up and did another search. Changes my avatar about 30 seconds after activating this plug-in. Thanks!

Good but not perfect
By , for WP 3.6

This is the best plugin to use for user-avatar.
The only problem is it hasn't a special custom error for "huge files" or "none photo" uploads.

Many (failed) Avatar plugins here, but THIS is simple & the best.

not working!!
By , for WP 3.4.2

Hell, another local profile image plugin that's not working.
i'm just wondering why this plugin is still up.
Maybe it's because of my 'old' ver of wp (i removed the enqueue function), but you should make it retro-comaptible ...

Amazing simple
