adding a photo to gaim

Hey all,

I was wondering if gaim is able to add a little avatar photo, like msn? I've looked at the gain FAQ and no dice

Thanks in advance,

buddy pics in Gaim

Open up gaim, click on Accounts in the Login window, select your account, click modify, and select a buddy picture (-> avatar) with the open button (and save it).
(MSN buddy icons exist since version 0.79)
