On the first slide of the project, the user will click on the avatar they wish to use. I imagine that the master content slides we'll be using will have a placeholder for the avatar's image. I've read up on advanced actions and user variables, and realize that I need to set a variable when the user selects their avatar, but I'm not sure what the value should be. If the project's library contains all of the images, can I simply set a variable named avatarImage to a image's path, i.e. 'images/avatar1.jpg', and then somehow set the slides placeholder to be the value of that variable?
Any help would be appreciated,

Hmmm... I do use multistate objects when needing to have different avatars, and go to the appropriate state baded on the choice of the learner. Totally different concept of course. How do you want to define the choice? Not by the learner?
I never use placeholders for images since they fix the size. You cannot use multistate objects on master slides.
Thanks multi-state objects was the solution, as I only had a small set (6) of potential avatars.
You're welcome. Why make it complicated if a simple solution is possible?
Perhaps the link below will offer some thoughts on how to approach what you are trying to do.
What I do not think I mention is the idea of creating a subsequent placeholder downstream that remains for the rest of the project. I might have an example of that somewhere but I would have to try and find it.
Thanks! this was very helpful.
