In wordpress, how can I change the profile picture of administrator or the users added. I didn't find any option to upload your profile picture from your PC. I know it is possible if I use Buddypress plugin in my wordpress. Is there any way to change the profile picture without this plugin?

Default

WordPress uses Gravatar, you can find more information about it here.

On WordPress.com, we use Gravatar to associate an avatar with a user’s account. If you’ve set up a Gravatar, it will be displayed when you post to the forums or comment on a blog, and it may also appear if your blog is featured on a tag page.

Custom - Backend

If you manually want to add images for your users, there are plenty plugins available to use:

  1. User Avatar
  2. Simple Local Avatars
  3. Add Local Avatars

Custom - Frontend

You could use Front-End Users, this plugin supports the User Avatar plugin.

  • I edited my answer for you :-) you can use a plugin to add the wanted functionality – Mike Madern Jul 9 '13 at 7:58
  • All the mentioned plugin uses a back-end profile page image upload area. If we need a front-end solution, what can be then? – Mayeenul Islam Jul 9 '13 at 9:13
  • And another edit for you ;-) – Mike Madern Jul 9 '13 at 9:17
  • Besides the above solutions, there is also the Profile Builder plugin that supports avatars cozmoslabs.com/wordpress-profile-builder – Cristian Dumitru Antohe Jul 23 '13 at 14:34
