On the Gravatar site, click “Create Your Own Gravatar”

Insert the email address you are using for the DM forum, choose a username for Gravatar (it has to be one that is not already being used on the Gravatar site, so you may need to try more than one) and create a password. Then click “signup”

Choose one of the options. Most will want to use “photo library” (this is using an iPad – the options might be different on a desktop or laptop)

After choosing your picture, use the handles to crop (you can see me cropping my little sister out of my picture 😛). Then click “Crop and Finish”

Choose a rating. Yours should be “G” 😉

Wait a few minutes and then check your profile on the forum again and you should see your picture.
