When a user edits their accounts details they can choose to upload an image or photo of themselves, also known as an avatar. The Avatar Selection module allows the user to pick an avatar image from a list already loaded by an administrative user. It is also possible to disable the uploading of pictures by users and only allow them to select an avatar icon from this list.

No images are supplied with this module. It is recommended that all images you use are roughly of the same size.


Once the module is activated, go to Administer >> Site configuration >> Avatar Selection (admin/settings/avatar_selection). Drupal 7: admin/config/people/avatar_selection. Here you'll find a form that will allow you to upload or delete images. Users with the 'administer avatar selection' access permission will be able to upload and delete the images.
