It depends on the method used to set the avatar.

When "Link off-site" is used, the user may set the Avatar dimensions within the allowed dimensions and the off-site avatar will automatically resized.

For upload (either from your machine or URL) the dimensions should be within the allowed dimensions of the board. Just explain to your users how they are able to resize their images e.g. using paint.

You must fill in the Avatar dimensions within the allowed dimensions of your board. Don't let it be decided automatically!

Just have a look at my avatar now. I used the picture of the ad at the bottom of the phpbb.com forum and manually entered 120 x 30 for the dimensions.

so weird...

at acp, i use 40x40px to 100X300px rule...

Link off-site: http://img51.imageshack.us/img51/9752/tron1ava3s.jpg

and the error said
The submitted avatar is 140 pixels wide and 279 pixels high. Avatars must be at least 40 pixels wide and 40 pixels high, but no larger than 100 pixels wide and 300 pixels high.

Than you will have to find or request a mod to resize avatars automatically.

With a quick search I found two mods that appear to work:
