There are many different ways of implementing Live Agent. Without knowing what level of customization in your installation you already have, it could be difficult for someone to give you an answer. You might want to look at the following post to see if it answers your question: Liveagent: Possible to use Custom Chat Window without creating a Force.com Site?.

If it doesn't, the best i can do is refer you to the Live Agent Developer's Guide, the Live Agent REST API Developer’s Guide and the Service Cloud Workbook.

A tad bit late, but I have posted the solution here:


Basically, you need to use the getDetails method to get the user id, having that information you can retrieve the photo.
