Comment (by imath):

 I'm not sure a Site's profile photo should be set in front-end. In this
 part, all site's the user's contributed to are listed (see
 {{{bp_blogs_get_allowed_roles()}}}. Today the site's avatar is the profile
 picture of an Admin, so just like the Site's title, it's something that
 should only be editable by the Site's Admins. As a user if i was seeing in
 my front-end profile the list of the sites i contribute to with for some
 sites a button (i'm an admin) to set the profile photo and for others no
 button (i'm not an admin), i'd be confused. All avatars on BuddyPress are
 set on a single item screen.

 To test the different filters in #6290, i've quickly built a "Site's
 profile photo" feature. I'm targeting the options-general.php
 Administration screen. Why? Because it's the place where you set the
 site's title, the description which are the main describing fields that
 are synchronized as BuddyPress blogmetas using hooks on
 {{{update_option_blogname}}} and {{{update_option_blogdescription}}}. So
 it seems logic to me to set the site's profile photo here.


 Clicking on the edit link will launch the Uploader Window


 Once the file is uploaded, the crop step would happen etc.
