    Jaana, You have to create a brand new gravatar account by clicking the blue button on the middle right if the page. When you sign up, use your msu email and whatever password you want.

    If you already have a gravatar account, log into the account that you created, if you’ve already linked with your wordpress site there should be an option to upload a photograph “add new image”. This will change the image on your wordpress account. Let me know if you have any problems!
