So a couple weeks ago I was trying to figure out how to add a picture to my profile so it would show up next to my comments. Well, I didn’t try very hard to figure it out and thought I’d look into it another today. Today is that day. I did a little digging and found that it was super easy. WordPress is now integrated with Gravitar and it’s super easy to create a Globally Registered avatar.
To creat one, head over to http://en.gravatar.com/ and sign up for an account. All you need is your email address and a picture. Once you sign up you can upload a picture, crop it after it’s uploaded and ta-da! you now have a Gravatar that appears anywhere you post something on the Internet that supports Gravatars (WordPress is one application that does). You can upload multiple pictues and change it whenever you want. It’s that easy!
So, what are you waiting for?
