There’s a new hack of Google plus, a not so popular social networking website but everyone who’s using Facebook is having a Google+ account too. This post will tell you how you can enlarge a profile picture or display picture or simply dp of any profile on Google+.The best part of this hack is that you don’t have to use any software or script. Also the picture doesn’t loses its quality (depending upon the original size of the image) after increasing size of it. Just follow the steps below:

  1. Open any profile on Google+. Right Click on the display picture and click view image. After that it will open a page with that picture only but a smaller one.

  2. From the same page check out the link address given in the address bar, it will be something like:

Which shows the image:

3. Now all you have to do is change the above link a little. See the last value in the link i.e “200”. This is the size of image in pixels, change it to somewhere between 500 and 1000. After that hit enter and it will show a larger picture. If the larger picture is not clear than it means that original picture isn’t that much large. In that case change the size accordingly.

New Link:
