📸 Crop Profile Picture 🎞️

🥇 Hi Similar Worlds 🐝

I'd like to announce some new features related to Photo Albums 👍

[big]Crop your Profile Picture 👀[/big]

Until now, it could be hard to get a profile picture properly positioned. Especially if the original photo wasn't a perfect square or the part you'd like to focus isn't at the center of the image.

To go around that, you can now select the exact area you want to be used for the profile picture, right after you upload the image.






[big]You can do this for any photo in your albums 📔[/big]

If you are not happy with the thumbnail of any of your photos/images, you can easily crop in the same way, by navigating to the page of the photo in specific, and select "[u]Crop Thumbnail[/u]".




[big]Recent Photos 🌅🏝️[/big]

Sometimes it can be confusing when navigating through albums, to find the most recently uploaded images. We have now added a new "Recent Photos" section, right below the albums list of that specific user.

Please note that this does NOT include pictures under the "Private Album" or "Post Images".

And, only public images, that the viewer is allowed to see, are displayed.
(if the user could see the picture by entering an album, then the picture can appear in the list)




[big]Remove Profile Picture ❌[/big]

For those who don't want to have a profile picture, it is now possible to remove it, by navigating to the section where you can change your profile picture:

Thank you for your support and we hope you continue to stay with us.

We are constantly listening to your suggestions, so please keep giving them to us, as they are very important to the future of Similar Worlds.

Very kind regards, 🧡

@Viper I pretty much use my face so I’m not really bothered if people can get hold of the original image which shows part of my shoulder or the top of my head 🤣🤣
Viper · M
@SophieSmiles I just wanted people to be aware!

And people gravitate towards you and others... so when they see your message they also might see the PSA! :D

That’s great, can you improve the quality also? They always look more blurry. 🙈😬 dare I ask lol
Y’all, this has changed my sw life for the better!!
@Viper excuse me sir, but what kinda girl do you take me for? 🙃🤭🤭
Viper · M
@SweetNSassy One that would call me Sir out of respect 😏

Also a fun one that likes to do something crazy one in a while.

And most importantly, one that cares for her community and when she gets a good message will continue to spread the good message to try to keep more people of the community shot 💉 eerr I mean [u]safe[/u], yeah safe is what I meant.
@Viper also, thanks for reminding me to post my daily covid facts 🙃🤭

I've racked my brain and I can't think of anything wrong with this feature :-)

However it does remind of something I wanted to ask before: could the profile pic be bigger?
Iwillwait · M
I thank you for these enhancements. These will all be useful.

InHeaven · F

Nuno · Admin
@InHeaven Not necessarily, really. This "Crop Image" was also in our plans since May, without any specific date, and got implemented today.

Great improvement. Good work and on behalf of those who suck at photoshop, thank you. 🙂
Beatbox34 · 31-35, M
Thank you. I always wanted to option to remove my profile picture altogether.
SoLeRiMix · 31-35, M
This is cool! Please give us the option to choose who (even within friends) or who cannot view our pics. Thank you!🙂
JerseyGal · 51-55, F
DeWayfarer · 61-69, M
@Nuno [quote]Please note that you can change the audience of your albums (Everyone vs People I Follow)[/quote]

Might be better to add that option on the "edit" description button, like when you edit a post.

Keep it close to similar on both posts and albums.
SoLeRiMix · 31-35, M
@Nuno [quote]Thank you for the suggestion. Please note that you can change the audience of your albums (Everyone vs People I Follow) [/quote]

Glad that you replied. I known the existing choices we have. However, if made more specific like who can view and who cannot, it would be better.

Like, I may have a friend in here but I might not want him/her to view pics basis the connect we have.

Please consider this request. Thank you!🙂
i have tryed it and it works ty for the hard work keep it up ty
DesiDudeJ04 · 26-30, M
