allow search to function on the "photo" field.
It is currently not possible to search for all members with the field "photo" field not equal to "empty", or to do any other sort of search on this field.
One obvious application would be to have the "Featured Member" widget in a member directory only show photos that actually exist. Currently, if half the members lack a photo, half of the "photos" shown will be just gray/blank profiles. It would be far better to only show photos of members who actually have photos!
Would like to second Club Webmaster's comment regarding adding the ability to use the Advanced Search to determine if a Member has a picture or not.
This would allow a Saved Search for Members with photos which could be used in the Featured Members gadget.
Club Webmaster commented
Add the picture field to Advanced Search so, for example, we can search for members who do not have a picture.

It would be great to have advanced search function to view profiles which have added a photo (for verification purposes)

Allow searches based on whether someone has an avatar or not.
I would like this option as well. We have 800 members and require a photo. We need to know who has a photo and who does not. Would love to have search function on photo field. If you have a work-around please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

I would like this option as well. I have a workaround, but it is error prone and requires the Admin to remember one more step. I have an example in PDF but I don't see a way to attach it to this Comment. Someone contact me please and I will send it.

Not sure what you mean - see this one.

Just tried to post my comment and it disappeared. What's up with that?

I have clients who would use this functionality for the Featured Member gadget too. Either a search function or a setting in the Featured Member gadget "display only profiles with photo".
