    Hi there fellow WordPress friends,

    I'm a newbie to WordPress and am trying to attach a profile picture to each user created e.g. author, contributor so that readers of posts can see their faces with each post and have a visual identity to each contributor. Is there any way I can add pictures for each user ?

    Thank you! :)

    WordPress uses Gravatar to show profile pictures. Have a look at Gravatar and upload a photo for your email address. Make sure that the photo you join Gravatar with is the same as the email address you used to register on your blog. Your other authors will need to register on Gravatar too.

    Once you're Gravatar is added you should see it show up in the admin section of your blog by clicking Users > Users. To show the pictures in your blog posts, you will need to use a theme that uses Gravatars (many of these do) or add some code where you want the photos.

    More info here.
