I know that Wordpress allows us to create a new user and the user's avatar is got from Gravatar service base on their email. How can I add authors in WordPress and assign them a picture (without using Gravatar service ) ?

Thank you !

P/S: I am sorry for my bad English. :)

I'd use a plugin for that, for example: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/user-photo/
