Are you tired of WhatsApp’s low-resolution photo transfers? Here’s how to solve it.
WhatsApp is a useful tool for communicating with friends and family. Some companies even use the app to communicate between departments. However, one of the platform’s major flaws is its punitive file size limit for shared images.
If you try to send full-resolution images using WhatsApp, you’ll almost certainly get problems or notice excessive image compression. So, if you want your images to keep their original quality, what should you do? Well, there’s a little-known method for sending crisp, high-quality images hidden in WhatsApp, and we’ll show you how to use it.
WhatsApp’s File-Sharing Limits
Depending on the media, WhatsApp offers varied file sharing limits. Photos, videos, and voice messages can be up to 16 MB in size. That may appear to be enough, but there’s a catch: WhatsApp uses a compression method even if your image is less than 16 MB in size.
The photo quality suffers as a result of this compression.WhatsApp, on the other hand, has a restriction of 100 MB for document sharing, and files sent as documents are not compressed.
How to Send High-Quality Photos With WhatsApp
You’ve probably guessed where we’re going with this, but the best way to transfer high-quality photos via WhatsApp is to save them as a document. The secret to high-quality WhatsApp image transfers is document sharing.
Here’s how to do it:
- Open any conversation on WhatsApp.
- On Android, tap the attachment icon adjacent to the camera icon and select Document. If you’re using an iPhone, tap the + icon on the left of the text box and select Document.
- Select your image by looking through your files.
- To share the image, tap Send.
Your photo will bypass WhatsApp’s 16 MB limit and will not be compressed after you transmit it. As a result, as long as the file size does not exceed 100 MB, recipients should receive the image in its original quality.
In the future, WhatsApp may make it official that users can share “high-quality” images and videos. You can, however, utilize the document-sharing approach to transfer full-resolution images at any point.
Send Full-Resolution Images on WhatsApp
Because of WhatsApp’s 16 MB limit and compression algorithm, sending high-quality photographs is difficult. You can trick the app into believing you’re delivering a regular file by sharing your image as a document.
