WhatsApp is undoubtedly the leading instant messenger around the world with over a billion active users. It is used by users for not only staying in touch with family and friends but also to share memories by sending photos and videos. But there is one minor issue with image sharing on WhatsApp which is that it ends up compressing the image file while sharing. It means even though the image might look fine on the smartphone, you would notice lose of details and quality while viewing it on a bigger display like on a PC.
So if you are wondering how you can send original photos on WhatsApp without any compression, there is a little workaround for the same. We have listed all the steps in the tutorial below which are quite easy ones to follow.
Step 1: You simply need to share image files on WhatsApp as a document. Tap on the file attachment icon and choose Document option from the list.
Step 2: Tap Browse other docs option available at the top. This will open the file browser for you to browse and select all sorts of files. Since we are talking about images, select the image file(s) you want to share in the original quality.
Step 3: After selecting the files you want to send, tap the Open option given at the top right corner of the file browser interface. It will ask for your confirmation to send and once you allow, it will send selected images to the recipient in original quality.
This way, you can send as many images you want to send in original quality. It should be noted that your images could have a large file size without compression which means it might take longer than usual for WhatsApp to send all or some of them. Alternatively, you can even choose to share images in high quality by either creating a single ZIP file or simply uploading them to your preferred cloud storage service and then sharing the corresponding file link.
