seems easy to use but there are limitations that need to be addressed.

1) no picture upload size limit stated. It would be nice to select a parameter in the backend site.
2) upload picture doesnt show in user profiles

I would give a 5star rating but after testing it, it seems that I can't make the photo appear after the user has logged in. I see only the name and I was hoping to have the photo next to it. Github doesn't have full guidelines as to how and where to place the piece of code to make the photo appear.

Also, it would be great to have editable image size at backend.

I'm not sure what the issue was for the previous reviewer. Maybe a permissions problem or php version or something?

This extension worked as expected for me and is extremely simple to implement.

This should have been a core feature of the new user profile system. I really can't for the life of me think why it wasn't part of the brief.

Lets hope third party devs pick this up and make it a standard.

My suggestion that may help improve this extension is minor. I think that it would be a good idea to have a text string in the profile page which informs the user of valid file size, dimensions and file extensions.

I haven't done much testing with different file types or sizes so I can't comment on how these are managed. I also haven't looked at any docs or readme files because thus far I haven't needed to, so that information maybe there somewhere I just missed it.

I really wanted to put a positive review up as the previous one may be putting people of experimenting with this extension.

Thanks for sharing your work.

Maybe I have been spoilt by other plug ins I have used.. At first this looked like it worked as I got the upload image field on the User profile form.
However it didn't tell me the pic had to be a certain size. After trying to upload an image 200px x 150px I kept getting "failure invalid image file"
Once I uploaded a 640 x 400 image it loaded immediately and is visible on the Joomla backend.
However it doesn't show on the Users profile when they log in and is not retrievable by them.
Having visited the vendors site (GITHUB)information is (for me as a complete beginner ) non existent.
