When you "Edit Profile Picture", did you choose "Upload Photo..." or "Choose from Photos"?

It is only when you Choose from Photos that you are given a change to CROP the picture if it is too big. So you can only capture the part that you want to use. When you Upload photos, it will be set to FIT into the picture box.

Give it a try and let me know.

that worked thanx


I am glad that it worked. Those are the only option now when changing FB profile pictures. The best option of course is to Choose from Photos since these pictures are high quality so you have the option to crop the best part. When you choose Upload Photo, the picture will become tiny since in the upload process, FB system will adjust it to fit the tiny picture box.
