    An avatar is just the image that people use as the image under there name on forums. You may have seen this on some forums where under the username it has an image of some sort. People just call it an avatar but it's a normal jpg, gif or png.
    Nothing different at all.

    #2 is the most commonly used definition. basically, any image (not just a picture; could be a statue or something) that's used to represent a person.
