To have downloaded pkg_profilepicture-1.1.0.zip file on YooDIY.
1 - Tell YooDIY what to do regarding users
Go to Components > YooDIY > Options > Member view tab. There are 2 important options here. User link is the type of page your users will go to when clicking on a YooDIY author. It can either be YooDIY author page OR EasySocial Profile page. Avatar manager takes two values: "EasySocial" or "Joomla". If "Joomla" is selected, then YooDIY expects pkg_profilepicture plugin to be installed and enabled.
2 - Install Picture Profile Plugin
Go to your Backend > Extensions > Extension Manager, select the pkg_profilepicture-1.1.0 archive and install it.

This is pure Joomla here. Just enable the fields you would like to manage in your user profiles.
