Cropping Photos

Whenever I try to use pics for profile pics or even to load them up on I.G. or such, the built in photo editor only allows 1:1 ratio cropping and it can only zoom in-it cannot zoom out.....i want to be able to use an entire pic for a profile photo.....is there a fix for this??

Re: Cropping Photos

Transfer the photo to your PC and enter it there. You can't do that from your BB as some apps require the pic to be sized. And, even if you transfer like I suggest, many services like Facebook and Twitter will automatically crop it for you so you won't be able to see it anyway.
