I’ve put together a very short (less than 2 minutes!) video showing you how you can crop a profile photo to a circle and save with a transparent background to use in your email signature, on your website, across the web or on other graphics for your business.

[UPDATE] When I first posted this video you could actually save images you created in PicMonkey for free without having to sign up at all, but unfortunately this is no longer the case. They do still have a 30 Day Free trial, but after your trial is up it costs $9 per month (which is still pretty reasonable price-wise compared to say Adobe products, but when you compare the capabilities of say Photoshop and Illustrator, you really need to weigh up which you’ll be better off with. PicMonkey is a great place to start if you just want to do basic editing and creation of graphics).
