Updating profile pictures with Gravatar

Sometimes, updating the profile picture on Forem profile takes 5 clicks before getting updated across a specific Forem instance.

Should this mandatory?

No. Give the user the choice during onboarding process and within the Profile settings.

Any design prototypes?

Since I'm not an UX Designer and I'm simply an JavaScript and Python developer, help is needed.

Are you hoping to have the choice to upload a photo at all when signing up? Or something else here?

It's up to the user whenever they upload their picture manually, use Gravatar or don't add an picture. If they changed their mind in the future, they simply go to Settings and choose their pick whenever go to system-generated pictures, use Gravatar, or upload manually.
