If you have seen posts that have comments with the authors picture or an image other than a silhouette of a head and wondered how to do your own, this post is for you.

In my opinion it is best to use your own picture and not to hide behind an image of the devil or something. Unless of course you really are the devil.

People are more likely to associate with you if they can see your face and follow your link to your site.

It really is simple to have your own Gravatar and all you need is a picture of you and an email address.

The first thing you need to do is sign up at Gravatar.com .

Click the link to sign up and you will see a screen like this

Just enter your email address and you will be taken to a screen explaining how to confirm your email.

You will then be asked to provide an image to use as your Gravatar and there are a number of ways you can do this.

You will then be given your options for you to provide a picture.

Once you locate your image you are then asked to crop it to how you would like it to show. If it is OK as it is just click ‘Crop and Finish’

The next screen is where you rate your picture. I don’t mean that you say “great picture I am gorgeous” or “I didn’t like how the wind made me look bald”

You select one of the options shown on-screen.

On the next screen you are asked to choose an image to use for your email address. You can also add more emails if you like and also more images.

The next time you post a comment anywhere that accepts Gravatars just use the email address you signed up with and your lovely self will be there for all to see.

I know you are itching to try it out so go on comment away………
