There was quite a lot of waiting on Gravatar 2.0, but it’s finally out! It features a cool cropping tool that will allow you to upload an image of any size and don’t worry much about the proper format; it’ll resize it to whatever you fancy. Gravatars, like OpenID, are those cool features that all blogs/forums/Web 2.0 should be adopting: a way to have a single place where you can define your online identity in a safe and protected way, and use the same ID for any social website that you can find, instead of going through the painful process of creating a new account on every single site and uploading your own avatar (and struggling with the different size requirements for each site!).
