Add a Facebook Profile Picture without Cropping It with HTC One M8
Edited by Thor, Crystal, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to add a profile photo to your Facebook account without cropping it on an HTC One M8.
To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the power button located on top of the phone. Once the phone has been activated we will see the lock screen.
To unlock the phone, swipe the screen up. Once the phone has been unlocked we will see the home screen, and at the bottom we will see 5 icons. We now need to open the application folder.
We can do that by tapping the icon in the middle, at the bottom of the screen. There is a grid of white dots. This is the icon for the applications folder.
Now that the folder has been opened, we need to find and tap the Facebook application. There is a Facebook icon, which is a blue background with a white "f" inside, and underneath it says the word "Facebook". We want to demonstrate how to add a profile photo to our account without cropping it. This is one of the biggest irritations and something that people have been asking us a lot about. When we go to the Facebook application and try to upload a profile photo, it will always crop it for us. This means that we might cut people or things out, and we won't be able to use the whole photo.
We now need to tap the menu icon in the top right-hand corner to find our profile. There are three gray horizontal lines.
We now press down on our name to open our profile.
Press down on the profile photo.
We now need to tap on the photo that we want to set as our profile picture. We will then be at the cropping stage.
Go back by pressing the back arrow in the bottom left-hand corner of the phone until we're back on the home screen. The only way that we can upload a profile photo to Facebook without cropping it is to go to their website.
Open the browser. We'll tap the earth icon to open ours.
Go to Facebook.com and go to your profile. We already have our profile loaded up for this example.
Tap on "More" with 3 gray dots in a horizontal line.
Tap on "Edit Profile Picture".
Tap on the blue bar at the top that says "Upload a New Photo".
Tap on the chosen option. We're going to tap on "Documents" to choose a photo from our gallery. If we wanted to take a photo right now, we could tap on "Camera".
We now need to tap on the photo that we want to set as our profile picture.
Tap on "Set as Profile Picture". It's not asking us to crop anything. The photo will then upload.
The full photo has been uploaded and we did not have to crop anything. Bear this in mind: we can't do this in the application. If we try to upload the photo in the application it will ask us to crop it. If we go to the website, we can upload a Facebook profile photo without having to crop it.
This concludes the tutorial on how to add a Facebook profile photo to your account without cropping it on an HTC One M8.
