How to View Facebook Profile Pictures in Full-Size?
This article will teach you how to view any person’s profile picture on Facebook even without being their friend. The new privacy settings of Facebook include the choice for people to opt for strict privacy. Facebook users who are not on their friends list will not be allowed to make certain actions on their Facebook profile page and that includes not viewing their profile picture in full size. If that is a problem to you, then this tutorial will be your solution.

There are three methods of doing this. Pick whatever you want. If one method does not work for you, try another one. Do follow the directives carefully to successfully accomplish this goal.

Method 1: View the Person’s Profile Picture in Full Size

  1. Right click on the person’s profile picture thumbnail.

3. Paste the URL you just copied into your browser’s address bar. It should look like this:

browser’s address bar

However, the main code should be http://profile.ak.fbcdn.net/hprofile-ak-snc7/cxx.xx.xx.xx/s160x160/xxxxx_xxxxxx_xxxxx_n.jpg.

 

4. Remove the “s160x160” and “cxx.xx.xx.xx” portions of the URL then change “xxxxx_xxxxxx_xxxxx_n.jpg” to “xxxxx_xxxxxx_xxxxx_o.jpg” The entire URL should now look like this: http://profile.ak.fbcdn.net/hprofile-ak-snc7/xxxxx_xxxxx_xxxxx_o.jpg

5. Afterwards, you are done! You can now view the person’s profile picture in full size!

3. When you enter https://facebook.com/username on the URL bar, you will be redirected to that person’s profile picture page which shows only a 50X50 image.
