As other reviewers are commenting, I'm here after being tricked by the authors of a different avatar plugin. This is doing the job nicely.

I was using rival plugin WP User Avatar (no "s") that just suddenly transformed into this 'ProfilePress' membership plugin adding a bunch of stuff I didn't need, want or asked for. WP User Avatars (this plugin, with an "s") is light weight, functional and does what it says it will do. Please keep it this way...

Glad I found this lightweight replacement for WP User Avatar (no "s"). That plugin was recently changed extensively and rebranded as ProfilePress. I didn't want or need all the stuff they added and am so happy that I found WP User Avatars (with an "s"). It's such a good replacement and it does just what I need, which is to allow me to create custom avatars for my users and authors. Great work!

@johnjamesjacoby, I really hope you will continue to maintain and update "WP User Avatars" now that its main rival has turned into the unwanted and bloated "ProfilePress" - 40,000 new users need you.

I use UM, and users know how to upload their pix to their profile, but then their articles they author is unable to show their profile pix (in author boxes) because WP and plugins that offer author boxes only look in gravatar for image sources. Another similarly named plugin (with 400k downloads) is unable to do what this plugin does so straight-forwardly. I am loving JJJ plugins, and learning from them.
