If you, like many others, have been using the BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) application for quite some time, chances are you know for sure that displaying your profile picture is less than a pleasant thing to do, to say the least. This is because you can’t seem to display your profile picture in its full size. Honestly speaking, this is quite a pity, considering how popular the application has become and that it is also available on multiple platforms. Well, as you know, having to crop your pictures every time you want to display them is not always a convenient thing to do. This is even more so when you want to display not only you but also your significant other or your friends, for instance. With cropping, it is guaranteed that some people in the picture will not be visible.
Fortunately, there is a workaround that you can try today but for this, you will have to make use of a third party application. To display your profile picture on BBM in full size, you can try to download and install the application dubbed ‘Profile w/o Cropping for BBM’ onto your mobile device where you use the BBM app. If you use the Android OS, you can get this app for free from the Google Play Store.
So, after downloading and installing the application onto your mobile device, here are the things you are supposed to do:
1. From within the application, click on the icon that has a red circle surrounding it. You can then choose your desired picture.
2. If you would like to change the background of your profile picture, you can also do this by choosing the icon surrounded by the red circle. When you are done, click on the icon that is surrounded by a green circle.
3. After that, click on OK.
4. Launch the BBM app and then change your profile picture. Here, you can choose the picture that you have edited in the steps above using the ‘Profile w/o Cropping for BBM’ app. You can choose the picture from your gallery on Android.
5. Voila! Your profile picture is now displayed in full size.
Note: Actually, you can also edit the profile picture you want to display by launching the ‘Profile w/o Cropping for BBM’ app from within the BBM app itself. However, if you follow the steps above, meaning that you have already edited your desired profile picture before launching BBM, it will no longer be necessary for you to launch the third party app from within BBM.
