Select an imagefield/filefield from a content type to serve as user picture (avatar). On selected content type node update, such as when a user saves his content profile, user picture is being pointed to the first file in the filefield.
The module integrates into user picture settings form and hides irrelevant settings. All user picture properties such as file size and dimensions requirements, default image are managed by imagefield/filefield.
Inspired by .
With Content Profile module and an imagefield/filefield attached to the content profile type first image in the field becomes the user avatar. If the field has multiple values you just need to instruct users to reorder images.
Install the module and it's requirements as usual. Attach an imagefield/filefield to a content type. Go to "admin/user/settings" and configure ImageField Avatar.
- ImageField Avatar works only on newly updated content: it won't replace old avatars automatically without user interaction (won't yet).
- User needs to have only one node of selected content type. Future versions may add multiple nodes support (e.g. a gallery with avatar node selection)
