How to Set or Change WhatsApp Profile Picture

You can set or change your profile picture on your WhatsApp account.

In this post, you’ll see how and you’ll also see the steps to remove it.

I use the app (Android and iPhone), Web, and Desktop. Let’s start.

Set WhatsApp Profile Picture (Android)

If you’re using an Android phone, follow these steps to set WhatsApp profile picture:

Open WhatsApp and hit the three vertical dots at the top right.

Select Settings and hit your name at the top.

Hit the Camera icon you see at the top, and you can see these two options:

  • Camera – this is for taking a picture and setting it as a DP (Display Picture).
  • Gallery – this one is for choosing an image and setting it as DP.

I prefer the latter here.

After choosing the picture, you need to bring the part of the image you want as DP into the square.

Use the handles or rotate option if you wish.

Hit Done at the bottom right.

That’s it.

If you wish to change WhatsApp DP, here are the steps:

Open WhatsApp and hit the three vertical dots at the top right.

Select Settings and hit your name at the top.

Hit the Camera icon, and you can see three options now:

The “Camera” and “Gallery,” which you saw earlier, need to use any of those to change the profile photo. 

The third is the trash can icon, which removes the profile photo. Hit it and select Remove from the popup.

That’s all.

Set WhatsApp Profile Picture (iPhone)

If you’re using an iPhone, follow these steps to set a profile picture on WhatsApp:

Open the WhatsApp Messenger app and hit the Settings tab at the bottom.

Hit your name at the top and select add photo, which you can see on the top left.

You can now view these options: “Take Photo” and “Choose Photo.”

The former is for taking a photo and setting it as a DP, and the latter is for choosing a photo as DP.

Choose the one you prefer. I use the former here.

After taking a photograph, you can see Use Photo at the bottom right. Hit it.

You need to move the picture and bring the part you want to be the profile picture in the circle.

Hit Done at the bottom right, and that’s all.

If you want to change the profile picture, follow these steps:

Open the WhatsApp app and hit the Settings tab at the bottom.

You can see your profile picture. Hit it. Hit it again.

Tap the Edit option at the top right.

You see these three options now:

“Delete Photo” – To remove DP, hit this one and then “Delete Photo” in the popup. That’s it.

“Take Photo” is for taking a photo and setting it as a DP, and “Choose Photo” is for choosing a photo as DP.

Choose either of the two latter if you prefer to change the DP.

That’s it.

Set Profile Photo on WhatsApp Web

Open the WhatsApp Web.

Hit the Account icon at the top of the left sidebar.

Click Add Profile Photo, and you can see these two options:

  • Take photo – this is for taking a picture and setting it as DP.
  • Upload Photo – this is for choosing a photo and setting it as DP.

Please select the one you prefer, and I chose the latter here.

Select the image and click on the Open button.

Bring the part of the image you want as DP into the circle and use the + and – if you wish.

The former is for zooming in, and the latter is for zooming out.

Hit the Tick icon, and that’s all.

If you want to change the WhatsApp profile photo, hit the current one, and you can see these options:

“Take photo” and “Upload Photo,” which you saw earlier, and you need to use one of those to change DP.

“View Photo” is for viewing the DP, and “Remove Photo” removes it.

Choose the Remove Photo and hit Remove in the popup if you want to remove it.

That’s it.

Set WhatsApp Profile Photo on Desktop

Open the WhatsApp Desktop app and hit the Account icon at the bottom left.

Click on the Account icon above your name and select the image you like.

Hit the Open button, and that’s all.

To change your WhatsApp DP, you need to do these steps:

Open the WhatsApp Desktop app and hit the current DP at the top left in the left sidebar.

Click on your DP above your name.

You can see these three options now:

  • Remove image – this one is for removing the profile picture. Hit it, and that’s it.
  • View image – this one is for viewing the profile photo.
  • Change image – this one is for changing DP. Choose it, select the picture, and hit Open.

That’s it.
