Adding your picture to your Gmail account

Gmail allows you include a profile photo with your Google/Gmail account, so that people who receive your email can see your picture along with your message. It is a simple little thing that creates a professional appearance to your communications.

It's simple enough to do, once you know where to look!
  1. Open your email account, click the gear icon and choose "Settings."
  2. Within the "General" tab, scroll down to the "My picture" option and click "Select a picture."
  3. Upload a photo, and resize it so that your face fills the box. Hit "Apply" when done.
    Pro tip: cute photos of your pets may be great for Facebook profile pics, but for a professional email photo, you should include a nice photo of your face, so people can recognize you instantly.
  4. When you return to the settings page, click the option to make your picture "Visible to everyone."
  5. Finally, scroll to the very bottom and click "Save Changes."  You're done, and your emails now look fabulous!
