I had the same problem with the very good BJ Lazy Load (, and the fix was to add an exclude to the plugin's "should I run" filter: Like

add_filter( 'bj_lazy_load_run_filter', 'skip_lazy_load', 12 );
function skip_lazy_load( $run_filter ) {
        // Disable Lazy load on user and group avatar upload/crop pages.
        if ( bp_is_group_creation_step( 'group-avatar' )
                || bp_is_group_admin_screen( 'group-avatar' )
                || bp_is_user_change_avatar() ) {
                return false;

        return $run_filter;

I'm not sure that this is a problem that BP can fix, since the various lazy load plugins are operating on the images via JavaScript, and aren't built to bind to images added after page load (but the php portion of the script runs anyway, stripping the images in the code returned by the AJAX call--which seems like a plugin problem, that could maybe be avoided by doing a DOING_AJAX check).

Anyway, I hope the plugin you're using has a similar filter to control when it acts.

@brianbws I hope @dcavins solution gives some idea of a solution. I don't think there's anything BuddyPress can do here because of the lack of standards in this area around WordPress plugins/themes

Yeah, I've been using a workaround, but it's not a solution. Was hoping for a better way.

/* turn off lazy load on avatar uplaod page */
add_filter( 'lazyload_is_enabled', 'bws_turn_off_lazyload_on_avatar_upload' );
function bws_turn_off_lazyload_on_avatar_upload( $enabled ) {
  if ( bp_is_change_avatar() || bp_is_group_admin_screen( 'group-avatar' ) )
    $enabled = false;
  return $enabled;
