How to Send Pictures Without Losing Quality on WhatsApp

WhatsApp is the world’s most popular instant messaging service that people across the world use, to stay in touch with family, friends and relatives. There are plenty of features that this messaging platform has to offer, like the ability to send pictures, videos, GIFs, audio files, contacts and even voice notes. However, there’s one department where WhatsApp has been receiving criticism over the years, and that’s image compression. That’s right, WhatsApp has always been known to compress the image files that are sent over the instant messaging platform, thereby reducing the image quality by a significant margin. Although we do realize that its done to fasten up the file transfer, not everyone prefers speed over quality. So, are you interested in sending the full image file without any compression and sacrifice on image quality?

The below steps demonstrate how to share photos, music and videos on WhatsApp, without losing quality.

Step 1: In order to send photos in full size, please update your WhatsApp to the latest version from Play Store.

Step 2: Now open the contact you want to share the photo in full size and tap on the attachment icon.

Step 3: From the menu, choose Document.

Step 4: Now you will be taken to the file manager, browse to the desired photo you want to share and select those. You will get a confirmation to share these documents.

Step 5: The photo will be shared in full size to your friends without losing any quality.

That’s it! The selected file will now be shared with your desired WhatsApp contact in its original quality, regardless of the smartphone platform (iOS, Android, Windows) that they are using. Since it’s shared as a document, it skips any compression algorithms that would have otherwise been applied, if the conventional media sharing method had been used.
