WordPress does not save the value of the avatar image in any database. It looks in the file system for avatar image and displays it on the website.
So, I am planning to download the image to the server, which is running the WordPress (BuddyPress). I need to create a directory with the name same as user ID, in the directory /wp-content/uploads/avatars/ and put two images, one as -bpfull.jpg (full image) and -bpthumb.jpg (thumbnail image). And these images will be displayed for that user, automatically.
