Send Full Resolution Pics On WhatsApp

Usually when we’re in the middle of a WhatsApp conversation and want to send a picture, we simply try to attach the photo. However, that’s not quite the case here. Simply follow the steps below to get this done within seconds:

  • Firstly, open up WhatsApp on your phone and tap on the “paperclip” icon to attach the picture that you want to send. Well, we’re not going to use the gallery to attach the photo. Instead, we’ll be attaching it as a document. So, simply tap on “Document” and then select the option to “Browse other docs…”.

  • Now, since the pictures that you’re going to send are usually located in the Gallery, you’ll have to browse the folder where you have your photos and select the specific photo. Once you’ve found it, tap “OK”.

Well, that’s pretty much the whole process. Instead of sending it as a photo, we’re sending the image file as a document, in order to prevent WhatsApp from compressing it. You’ll notice that if you send the picture as a document, you won’t get the image preview like you normally would, when you try to send a photo over WhatsApp.
