Setting up a profile picture

Grepsr uses Gravatar to obtain a user’s profile picture. Gravatar provides a single profile and avatar that can be used everywhere on the web. 

When a new user signs up, we look up their Gravatar profile using their email address. If a public profile is found, then their avatar from Gravatar appears as their profile picture. However, if a profile is not found, we create a generic profile picture using their initials. 

To set up your Gravatar profile 

  1. Go to the Gravatar website
  2. Click on the big, blue “Create Your Own Gravatar” button
  3. Either create a new account or sign in with the one you have already set up
  4. Add a new email address and then upload the photo of your choice
  5. That’s it! You’ll see the photo you associated with your  email address in the Grepsr platform
