    Is it possible to set a users avatar from there gallery?

    I see the mediapress addon but I am not sure if it will do what I want it to.

    Ultimately I would like to auto create their avitar from an image from their mediapress gallery.

    They can update it after but for now we just want to have a nice pic in the avitar.

    The Media Press addon seems to just allow avatars from their mediapress gallery.

    Hi Andrew,

    The addon allows users to set their avatar from a MediaPress image. We emulate the avatar upload with MediaPress image.

    If you want to automate it, you don’t need to emulate MediaPress Set Profile Photo. But in that case, MediaPress merely acts as a source of avatar image, rest will be upto you and BuddyPress avatar API to set the avatar. MediaPress doe not have much role to play here.

    In other words, You should look into setting up an avatar from a url if you plan to write the code for this.
