WhatsApp profile pictures are established by each user and then downloaded into your device, so you won't be able to reeplace the online version uploaded by themselves.

What you can do (at least if you have an android phone) is getting into this folder

/device/sdcard/WhatsApp/Profile Pictures

Using an app like ES Explorer, you could take notes of the names of each friend's filename and then reeplace it with another 640 x 640 px photo, but keeping the same filename. This way you will be able to reeplace/customize Whatsapp profile photos in your local device.


Apparently No, it is not possible to change someone else WhatsApp profile picture. Just incase the person is not having a whatsapp profile picture, you can save the person as contact in your phone with a picture of your choice. The same will appear in your whatsapp also.

Actually, somewhat it is possible, here is the hack:-

Resize the pic you want to use to 561×561. Save it in Device/WhatsApp/Profile Pictures on your phone. Then rename it to your friend's phone number, including country code first. Reopen WhatsApp and your job is done.
