Did you enable gallery avatars? (ACP > Board configuration >> Avatar Settings)
Spelling is freeware, which means you can use it for free.
On the other hand, it is not open source, which means you cannot change it or publish it in a modified form.

Yes, and it shows path as: images/avatars/gallery

After looking again in: ACP > Board configuration >> Avatar Settings, I see at the bottom of the page it says:

Avatar storage path:
Path under your phpBB root directory, e.g. images/avatars/upload.
Avatar uploading will not be available if this path is not writable.
Double dots like ../ will be stripped from the path for security reasons.

So. I tried uploading here with same results...

You might have to clear board cache before being able to select a category.

Found the Purge Cache in the ACP > Resynchronise or reset statistics > Purge Cache

That did the trick!

Thank you :D
