Cropping Photos on BBM

Good Day,

 

I notice that since the last posts sent in 2013, there still seems to be no update on how to crop a picture on to the BBM Profile picture.

This happens with a photo taken from the camera, or an existing picture that I have downloaded. The picture is to large, and the cropping does not work. There is NO option to resize anything, so please dont tell me to do so. And the pic ends up being cut off from the sides or most of the pic missing.

 

Please help!

Kathryn

What you can do is use the picture you took in the image editor then add it to bbm! Smiley Wink that's what I did Smiley Happy

Kathryn88, is this when you are trying to set your OWN BBM profile pic?

Hey There

 

Yep, my own BBM profile pictures. If the picture has words, It will usually cut out most of it

Hey There

 

That does not help either. There is no option to resize it

Kathryn88, yes there.

 

Open your Pictures application.

Tap to open the picture in question.

Tap the EDIT button at the bottom.

Crop, etc., and SAVE.

 

Done.

 

IF you have questions about that process, please ask. But you cannot say "that does not help..."

Because you have not said clearly what it is you are wanting to do, change the size of the PICTURE, or change the size of the FILE itself.
