Create a contact in your Gmail account (manually)

Profile of a newly created Gmail contact When you sign up for a new Gmail account and email address, your profile is "empty" of any contacts; a later tutorial will explain how to import contacts from another webmail service or an email program you have been using; in this tutorial, we will show you how to manually create a new contact in your Gmail account. It is not only easy, but also very quick to do, since Gmail lets you add as little information as you want or need for new contacts, with the option to go back and edit their information later on (like adding a phone number, a second email address, a profile picture for that person, etc.)

Tip: this Gmail tutorial explains how to add a new contact "from scratch", by entering their info in your contacts list. The next tutorial shows how to add an email sender as contact, which will save you some typing if you have an email message from that person in your inbox.
