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:

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

Simple and Perfect!

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

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

Up and running in seconds
By , for WP 3.6

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.
