How to Set Whatsapp DP Without Losing Quality

Setting a new DP on Whatsapp is always exciting. You could change the photo to a new picture that looks great when uploaded on your profile. Some people have a habit of changing their Whatsapp DPs regularly. If you upload a new DP frequently, you may have noticed that Whatsapp changes the size of certain pictures automatically and as a result, the quality of the photo is reduced significantly. That’s because Whatsapp (like any other social networking site) has certain regulations when it comes to the display picture.

If you have ever tried to upload a large picture that doesn’t match Whatsapp’s standard format, you will notice that Whatsapp automatically resizes the image so that it fits your profile. In order to upload a display picture on your Whatsapp, you either need to change its size by cropping the image or Whatsapp will automatically resize the image. Sometimes, you are simply not okay with the picture getting cropped as it may cut the necessary details from the frame.

For example, you may want to upload a DP featuring you and your friend, but due to Whatsapp’s image format restrictions, the size is cut into 640 x 640 pixels. As a result, you don’t get the image in your desired format. The worst part is that cropping the picture can result in quality loss. You don’t want your DP to be of low quality or look a little blurry when uploaded.

So, the question is “can you set your Whatsapp DP without losing the quality of the picture”? If yes, how can that be done?

Let’s find out.

How to Set Whatsapp DP Without Losing Quality

Yes, it is possible to change your Whatsapp DP without having to resize the image or make any changes to the picture that might result in quality loss. However, Whatsapp does not support a built-in function that can allow you to crop and resize your photo from the platform directly. It is important to use third-party tools to get the desired image size.

In this post, we are going to discuss a few steps for those looking for an easy and effective way to get their picture resized easily.

Use SquareDroid

SquareDroid is the best mobile app for preserving the quality of the photo.  The app works for both Android and iPhone users, but it is currently not available on Google PlayStore and AppStore, which means you have to search for it on Google.  Here are the steps for using Square Droid for uploading Whatsapp DPs without losing the picture quality.

  • Open your desired photo from your gallery or capture the latest picture from the camera using this app.
  • Select a suitable background from blur, gradient, and plain.
  • It is one of the most natural ways to decrease the picture size without losing its quality.
  • Save these changes on your mobile.
  • Open Whatsapp and select the option of changing profile photo from settings.

There you go! You can choose the saved photo from your gallery and upload the picture on your Whatsapp. You can use Square Droid to upload a picture you had already clicked earlier or capture a new photo from this app to make editing easier. The speciality of this app is that it enables people to adjust the size of the photo or crop the image without compromising on the quality of the picture. In most cases, cropping a photo means the picture quality is lowered significantly. What you see in the large photo looks blurred when it is converted into a small picture.
