I don’t think that you can. Wall photos can be screened individually, but all of the others are by album.

@ANef_is_Enuf I thought pictures in all albums except ‘Profile Picture’ album could be screened individually.Thanks :)

@gamefu91 it used to give the option, but it never really worked properly for other albums. Maybe it is fixed now that they have updated the way that you screen posts.

What is your goal in hiding certain profile pictures? Do you want it to appear as if you don’t have a profile photo, to those that it is blocked from?
Or, if you don’t plan on using the photo again.. could you just move it to a different album where it can be screened?

How do I move certain profile pictures? will the comments and likes be lost?
I want only the current profile picture to be visible,the others I want to hide,if I could?

@gamefu91 if you hide the whole album, only the current photo will show. You can hide the entire album from certain people, and make it visible to others. That would work. Then your profile pic album would stay in tact, but only certain people could view the photos inside.
To do that, just go to your photos page, and click to view all albums. There will be a little icon under each album that kind of looks like a gear with an arrow, you can customize your settings there.

If I hide the whole ‘Profile Picture’ album…no one can comment/like the current profile picture,right?

I don’t want that

@gamefu91 not if you only hide it from certain people. You can set it so that only the people you want to block the album from can’t view it. Then whoever has access to the album can still comment and like your photos.
