  1. Click Comment to open the first slide.
  2. Click your Name in the top right corner of the VoiceThread window.
  3. Hover over your identity and click Edit (Pencil).
  4. Click the Upload icon to upload a photo from your computer, or click the Camera to activate your camera and snap a shot.
  5. Click Save.
  6. Click Done.
showing the locations for steps to create your photo identity.

You’re Done!

The Photo Identity displays at the upper right corner of your VoiceThread to the left of your name where your Initials appeared before.

You are now ready to make your first comment with your Photo Identity.
