Still with WhatsApp and BlueStacks images gallery problem, today we going to change WhatsApp profile picture with photo on DropBox folder. But before continue on changing its profile photo, make sure you know how to share pictures between PC, BluesStacks or Android with DropBox. Otherwise read my earlier article about sharing photo with DropBox or watch the Video on YouTube.
As we know, WhatsApp don’t have direct access to DropBox shared folder. But we can export photos from DropBox shared folder into WhatsApp chat. This is also apply to profile photo setting which can’t directly access DropBox shared folder. Sadly there are no way to directly export images from dropbox shared folder into profile.
So how can we change WhatsApp profile picture on BlueStacks? This apps can only access images on images Gallery folder and also its sub-folders. There are several folders on Image Gallery and one of them is “WhatsApp Images“. This folder used to store images shared on chat. This mean every-time you got a photo from chat, it will downloaded into this folder. Today we going to use this folder as an images export location.
There is also SD Card folder on images Gallery, which mean all photos on root SD Card location will be available in this folder (only on root location). But i don’t think it wise to store images on SD Card root location. So, there is 2 ways to store pictures and photos into WhatsApp Images folder:
Simple right? Btw, BlueStacks also support webcam, which mean you can directly use camera to take picture for profile or share. You can also watch my short video (silence video) about changing profile picture for WhatsApp on YouTube.
