'providers' => [
	....
	ThomasweltonLaravelGravatarLaravelGravatarServiceProvider::class,
],

'aliases' => [

Gravatar::exists($email) will return boolean to let you know if the $email is associated with Gravatar.

<!-- Show image with default dimensions -->
<img src="{{ Gravatar::src('thomaswelton@me.com') }}">
