HOURhave you ever had this where you posted an image to Whatsapp, just for it to shrink and degrade the picture quality? Well, if so, then this article might be very helpful.
Here, we’ll walk you through the simple steps required to send uncompressed images to Whatsapp without loss of quality.
Method one: attach an image as a document
Perhaps the easiest and most straightforward way to send an uncompressed image Whatsapp do this by sending it as a document. This is great if you only want to send one or two images.
To do this, open a conversation with the person you want to send the image to. Then click the + sign. From there, you will see the “Document” option. After you select this, a series of documents with no images will appear. If you can click Browse or View Other Documents, you will see more options appear. If you don’t see the image you want to see, you may need to go to your images and make sure it’s saved as a file or document.
Method two: zip and attach the file
If you only want to send one or two images, use the Document method. But if you want to send multiple images – perhaps from a holiday or something else – you can choose the Zip and Attach File method.
You will need to download an app – File Commander and QuickPic – two popular Android apps – that will allow you to zip a file and then send items in their original form; it looks like they are being compressed into a file, but then at their normal size after unpacking.
Once the file is zipped and that’s it, open Whatsapp and find the conversation you want to send for sending images. Follow the same process as above – click the + or clip icon to download the document – and then you should find the zip file you created, which you can then send.
