Questions and Answers

I want to select a pic without cropping?

I want to select a pic without cropping

You will have to edit your picture anyway. You can create a 512x512 picture with frames either to the sides or above and below. There are tools to help you with that: a tool for Android and a tool for iOS. You can use NoCrop even for Telegram to make a square picture out of any photograph that you have.
