GPG and PhotoID

To add a PhotoID to your GPG key is fairly simple. You'll want to edit your key, and issue the addphoto command.

gpg --edit-key 3C88C6DE Command> addphoto Pick an image to use for your photo ID. The image must be a JPEG file. Remember that the image is stored within your public key. If you use a very large picture, your key will become very large as well! Keeping the image close to 240x288 is a good size to use. Enter JPEG filename for photo ID: c:\download\foo2.jpg Is this photo correct (y/N/q)? y
To delete simply select the sub key, by typing it's number (in this case 2).
