    Hey Cornelius,

    I hope you're well today!

    Assuming that you're talking about self-hosted WP site, to add an author bio you have to:

    1) if you're an author adding your own bio:
    - log in to your account
    - click on the "Howdy, name" link (top right corner of the screen), there might be however another word instead of "Howdy" but the "name" is always your name
    - select "Edit my profile"
    - scroll down to a "About Yourself" section
    - fill-in the "Biographical Info" text box and save data

    2) if you're an admin adding a bio of someone else
    - log in to your dashboard
    - go to "Users" -> "All users" page
    - hover the mouse over the selected user's name
    - select "Edit" link underneath
    - scroll down to a "About Yourself" section
    - fill-in the "Biographical Info" text box and save data

    To use an image on any WordPress account (may it be self-hosted install as well as an account on WordPress.com site) the user needs to setup a gravatar for his e-mail first, which can be done here:

    http://gravatar.com

    To access author's articles typically you use an URL like this one:

    yourdomain.com/author/NAME/

    where NAME stands for the author's display name. That's of course assuming that your site uses "friendly"/"pretty" permalink structure. It's also worth noting that it heavily depends on theme's design how the author's posts list is displayed and if the author's bio is shown on this page.

    I hope that helped.

    Regards,
    Adam
