Have you looked at using the built-in method to retrieve the avatar? Check out the transformation documentation.

<%# GetUserAvatarImageUrl(Eval("UserAvatarGuid"), Eval("UserID"), 200, 150, 150) %>

If the image is stored on your website you can simply use HTML to build the image tag with the src attribute populated. I use something like this with a macro to get the domain:

<img src="{%RootDocument.AbsoluteURL#%}images/notifications.png" />

If your debugging while trying to test this, you'll need to ensure the Visual Studio debugger is still running otherwise port 5252 won't be open and your image won't be available.

What method are you using to get the avatar GUID?

once again thank you for your reply. Yes, While i am recieving email that time my debugging in vs-12 is running. And also it is asking for download image . When i click to download image,then image is dissapear.and when i reopen that mail then img(not the image, like alt="image") is comes for a second and gone. and for getting avtar i am using custom method for retriving avtar image from avtar table by guid. AvatarInfo Avatar = AvatarInfoProvider.GetAvatarInfo(AvatarName); if (Avatar != null) { FileCollection obj = new FileCollection(); obj.Name = Avatar.AvatarFileName; obj.type = Avatar.AvatarMimeType; obj.size = Avatar.AvatarFileSize; obj.Content = "data:image/png;base64," + Avatar.AvatarBinary; obj.FileContent = Avatar.AvatarBinary; obj.FileExtension = Avatar.AvatarFileExtension; return Avatar.AvatarGUID;

Yes, That also feasible solution for Getting Avtar from cms Avtar Table.But one question for you Froggeye, In the case of Custom table if my image in custom table then is it possible to retrive that image using macro like u are getting avtar image from the kentico system table.

If you have a field in the custom table that utilizes the avatar form control, then yes it should work without a problem.
