Placing an entire picture on the WhatsApp profile is not a procedure that can be done natively, and therefore users have to resort to external applications such as WhatsCrop. Available for Android phones, the editor allows you to add borders to the image so that it is fully displayed and still respects the size standard defined by the messenger. In addition, if you want, you can customize the frame with gradient colors or blur made with the photo itself. See below how to add borders to photos using the WhatsCrop app.
