How to send photos without quality loss in WhatsApp

It's great to be able to send photos to your WhatsApp contacts anytime, but the fact that the app compresses files so they don't get too heavy can be a pretty annoying problem. In many situations, the photo simply loses a lot in quality and this becomes one of the worst ways to share your photos with someone. Even without a specific option for resolving this, you can upload your images in a different way to maintain their original quality on WhatsApp. If you're curious about how to do this, just check out our tips below!

Upload photos without loss of quality

As we mentioned earlier, WhatsApp does not have an option to upload image files at their highest quality, which would definitely be very useful. Anyway, it's pretty simple to get around the problem.

To get started, open the app and choose one of your contacts to which you will send the image. Then click the click icon at the bottom of the screen.

Now choose the "Document" option instead of "Gallery" or "Image."

This will open a folder full of different documents from your smartphone, so just look for the photo you want to send to your contact.

Click on the image and a WhatsApp warning will appear asking if you really want to upload the photo. Click "Submit" to proceed.

Soon after, WhatsApp will start uploading the image as a document and in its original quality. There will be no compression and no preview as we usually see with other photos.

Your contact will need to download the photo and will open it directly in your device gallery. This way, the person will have a good quality copy and without much effort. Very simple, isn't it ?! You can still check out this video tutorial below!
