I couldn’t find the original post for how to add an avatar through Gravatar so thought I’d start a new one.
Here are some step-by-step directions.
Go to http://www.gravatar.com.
At the top right of the page, click sign in. On the next page, go to “Create an Account” (it’s in light blue text under Sign In).
On the following page, be sure to enter the email address that you use for this site. If you forgot which one you used (as I did!), you can go to the My Account link at the top of this page and it will show you.
Back on the Gravatar site, type in your email address and password (the username field is filled in automatically).
You’ll then need to go to your email account to activate the Gravatar account.
Once you’ve followed the link from the activation email, click the sign in button on that page. You should automatically be signed in now.
Okay, now you can finally add your picture! About half way down the page, you’ll see “Whoops, looks like you don’t have any images yet! Add one by clicking here!” Click that link.
The next page will give you options for where you import your picture. I selected from my computer’s hard drive. On the following page, browse for your picture on your HD and click “Next”.
The next page will have a crop feature that you can use if you want.
When your picture’s all pretty, click “Crop and Finish!”.
You should now be all set.
Hope this helps and that you’re able to get it to work.
