Easy Way to add a WordPress author profile photo?

This tutorial is straightforward. You don’t get much pressure to add a profile photo on your WordPress blog—two ways you can complete this process. The first process is using the Gravatar website and second using Avatar WordPress plugin.

In this post, we will use the Gravatar website, which is the best for uploading WordPress profile pictures. Most of the bloggers, guest writers, commenters use this method to add a profile picture on a WordPress site.

On the other hand, if you follow this way, your website will not face any problem of loading speed.

So let’s start 

First of all, Go to the Gravatar website then create a new account or If you have a WordPress.com account already then you can use that.

After successfully creating a Gravatar account, you have to login your new account, then click on our Gravatar profile and then “Add an image“.

Then, click on the ‘choose file’ and upload a photo. After that, click on the “Next” blue button.

Now adjust your photo to crop then click “Crop image!” button.

Note: while cropping a photo, you can see a small preview and large preview right sidebar of the photo cropping section.

In the next step, you have to choose a picture rating from your Gravatar option. Here you will get four types of Gravatar ratings, and you also get their detailed information. So read these pieces of information, which help you to choose the right one. 

For the WordPress author picture, the first rating option is perfect that we suggest.

So, you choose the “G” rating because it’s the most suitable rating option for the WordPress blog to show the author profile picture.

Now you will be able to see your profile photo on your WordPress blog, author bio, or comment section. Sometimes it can take a little time to show a picture in the author section, so wait 5 or 10 minutes.

For example, if you register an account on a WordPress blog by an email that you have used on your Gravatar account, your profile photo will show in a comment section, even the author section.
