He usually wears a checkered cap and a blue towel around his neck. You've probably seen him one time too many over the last couple of years. And although this meme is still alive, it looks like the trend is coming to an end. Back then, apart from being amazed by the obvious, people used to wonder how it was possible that the image shown wasn't what they had seen in the thumbnail preview. What kind of sorcery is this?

With Photo Magic you can share a photo keeping part of it hidden.

This effect is due to the fact that the thumbnail that appears within the chat has certain limited dimensions. When you send a photo that's much taller than wider, the preview can't show the entire picture forcing you to open it to see it in its full dimensions. Now that you know how it's done, want to learn how to do it yourself? You've got two options: you either find out the right dimensions to create your own spoof image with Photoshop or you can get hold of Photo Magic for WhatsApp that does it all for you.

Using this app, you can combine three photos in one.

Stupidly simple functioning

This app couldn't be any easier to use. Once you open it, you'll access a menu where you have to upload three pictures from your device's multimedia gallery. The one in the middle is the one that will appear in the cat preview. Below you'll have to place a taller image, and above a smaller one. Just press OK and that's it. The next step is to send the magic photo via WhatsApp.

Fast and easy, although Photo Magic for WhatsApp has a drawback: although the pictures you upload can be resized however you like, they are scaled for the final montage. So it's useful to play pranks on WhatsApp but not for anything serious.
