A simple way to send high quality images on WhatsApp: WhatsApp is becoming the default messaging application in many parts of the world (except, of course, in the U.S.).
That’s mostly due to the fact that it’s free, quick, and end-to-end encrypted. However, one disadvantage of WhatsApp’s popularity is that it compresses every photo and video you send.
You may need to transmit or receive a picture through WhatsApp at times, and it must be of excellent quality. While WhatsApp does not have official support for this, there is a workaround: transmit the image as a document.

Android: simple way to send high quality images on WhatsApp
On Android, you can directly send images or videos as a document. To get started, open the conversation where you want to send the media. Then, tap the Attach button (looks like a little paper pin icon) and choose “Documents.”

iPhone: simple way to send high quality images on WhatsApp
As we mentioned above, the process on the iPhone is slightly more convoluted. First, you need to pick your images or videos and you need to add them to the Files app. Open the Photos app, and choose the images you want to share. Tap the Share button and use the “Add to Files” option. Here, choose the folder, and tap “Save.”
Now, go to the WhatsApp conversation, tap the Plus button, and choose “Document.” This will open the Files document picker. Navigate to the folder where you saved the images. Here, tap the Menu button at the top and choose the “Select” option if you want to send multiple images. Select the images, and hit “Send.”
