How to Send WhatsApp Images Without Compression on Android and iPhone

This guide will show you how to send uncompressed high-quality photos on WhatsApp on Android and iPhone. Uncompressed images will be larger in size but will keep all the detail from the original.

If you’ve used WhatsApp, chances are you’ve sent lots of photos to friends and family. I have several thousand pictures in my WhatsApp folder, and perhaps you do too. You might spend a lot of time editing them, too, to make them look just right. However, WhatsApp has one big limitation when it comes to sharing photos.

In order to limit data usage and backup size, WhatsApp compresses all images sent by default. Compressed images can look okay sometimes. But if they were taken on a high-quality camera, you would want to see all the fine details. In this guide, we’ll explain how you can send full WhatsApp images on both Android and iOS. These have great detail and no reduction in image quality. The methods used are different for Android and iOS. Read on to find out how to do it.
