What to do if the messenger compresses the picture too much?
If you decide to send a photo via WhatsApp in the standard way, then to the recipient it may look like it was taken on an ancient camera. The thing is that the messenger compresses all images so that they are sent faster. Fortunately, this feature of the app can be bypassed.
Send a Photo in WhatsApp in its Original Size on iOS
Save the desired image to Files by selecting the appropriate item in the context menu. You need to save to the folder of some application installed on the device, or to iCloud.
Go to WhatsApp and open a conversation with the person you want. Click on the send file icon at the bottom of the screen. Now you need to click not on “Photo / Video”, but on “Document”.
The Files application will open and you can select the picture you want. It will ship in its original size, without any compression.
Send a Photo in WhatsApp in its Original Size on Android
In the case of Android, you will be able to send images without compression, wherever they are stored. The main thing is to know in which folder the picture is located.
Go to WhatsApp and open a conversation with the right person. Click on the send file icon at the bottom of the screen. Select “Document” and find the desired picture in the memory of your smartphone or on a memory card.
Done! The image was sent without compression.
