    Hi everybody

    When I click " make my profile pic" for any of my fb photos , the crop box appear , but u can not drag it from iPad to adjust size. Cropping option is disabled from iPad

    I tried application photogene that is supposed to edit pic, crop it and send it or upload it to my " profile pics" album on fb , but unfortunately when i crop the pic through photogene and when I come to upload it to my profile pics album , I can not c that album in particular among my fb albums ...so this method does not work for me although it worked for other people ( I checked fb privacy setting nothing to do about it )

    I do not think that cropping can be done, but Safari does not support uploading of pictures, try the icab web browser for this.

    I have a suggestion that ma work.

    After you've cropped the picture in Photogene, just upload it. Doesn't matter what album. Make a new one if it does not fit your current crop. Now go back into Facebook and find an view the picture. If I remember right there will be link that says something like 'make this my profile pic'. Tap that.

    If that does not work, say so and I'll see if I can come up with something better. Might take a while though. I'm pretty busy from tomorrow thru Sunday.

    Use the Facebook app. Once you locate the image you want to use, open it up and then just hold down on it (instead of tapping). A menu will appear which lets you set it as your profile pic. Once you chose that, you'll be prompted to crop. Admittedly, this took me forever to figure out, so I thought I'd share.
