try ar- your web ID face: Gravatar
....maybe this trick kinda odd, or maybe most web users already knew about this - gravatar
you frequently visits sites / blogs and giving comment, so why don't you add some fun. instead of having just text of comment,now you also can put an image that would represent you in the web
. this is fun, and I'm already using it. you can see my gravatar below. so everytime my friends or anyone see my garavatar on any sites, then they'll know, that it is me commenting on the sites.
some of you already knew, some may not. basically, a gravatar, or globally recognized avatar, is quite simply an 80×80 pixel avatar image that follows you from weblog to weblog appearing beside your name when you comment on gravatar enabled sites
. Avatars help identify your posts on web forums, so why not on weblogs?
getting your own gravatar is not hard at all. Signing up for a gravatar.com
account is FREE
, and all that's required is your email address. Once you've signed up you can upload your avatar image and soon after you'll start seeing it on gravatar enabled weblogs!. remember only on gravatar enabled weblogs, you can use gravatar
you can upload JPG, GIF or PNG images in any size
. all uploaded images will be resized to 80x80 pixels. transparency in GIF and PNG images will be preserved
moreover, if you have your own blog / sites you also can make your sites support the gravatar feature
. setting up the gravatars in your site is easy, you don't need any account. plugins are available. to request a gravatar from gravatar.com servers, simply add an image to your comments area with an "src" attribute that points to the gravatar image generator and includes an MD% hash of the commneter's email address.
and also, since all gravatars are rated with an MPAA style rating, you can restrict your site to show only gravatars that you comfortable with
so, what more can i say. it is easy, fast and also FREE
. don't wait anymore, create your own gravatar. let the web users know you.
