Send High-Quality Photos and Videos on WhatsApp Like a Pro

Hey there! Are you tired of sending blurry and pixelated photos and videos on WhatsApp? Well, fear not! I’m here to show you how to send high-resolution pictures and videos like a pro.

First things first, let’s talk about photos. When you open WhatsApp and select a photo to send, you might notice that the quality isn’t always up to par. But don’t worry, there’s a simple solution. Instead of tapping on the photo directly, try using the camera icon at the bottom of the screen. This will allow you to take a new picture or choose an existing one. By doing this, you’ll ensure that the photo is sent in its original resolution, preserving all the details that might be lost otherwise.

Now, let’s move on to videos. WhatsApp automatically compresses videos to save data and ensure a smooth sending experience. However, this compression can sometimes result in a loss of quality. But fear not, my friend! I have a trick up my sleeve for you. When you’re about to send a video, instead of selecting it directly from your gallery, try using the document icon next to the camera icon. This will allow you to send the video as a document, without any compression. Just keep in mind that larger files might take longer to upload and send, so a little patience might be required.

And there you have it! By following these simple steps, you’ll be able to send high-resolution photos and videos on WhatsApp without any hassle. Your friends and family will be in awe of your crystal-clear content.

So what are you waiting for? Give it a try and let the high-quality visuals speak for themselves. Happy sharing!

But don’t worry, I’ve got good news for you! You can now share HD-quality pictures and videos on WhatsApp easily. Interested to know more about sending photos and videos in HD quality on WhatsApp? Keep reading!

What You Need to Know About Sharing HD Quality Pictures and Videos on WhatsApp

So, you can totally send full-resolution pictures and high-quality videos on WhatsApp. But there are a few things you should know about this feature.

  • If a photo has a low resolution, you won’t see the option to share it in HD. WhatsApp only allows high-quality photo sharing if the photo has adequate resolution.
  • The high-quality picture-sharing feature applies only to sending pictures as media files through a WhatsApp chat. It doesn’t apply to images shared through status updates.
  • All the photos you send in HD quality will have an “HD” tag in the chat.
  • When you choose the high-quality option for sending pictures, your image won’t be shared in its original quality. WhatsApp will share photos with light compression applied in up to 12MP resolution. If the resolution is higher than that, it will be reduced to around 12MP.
  • You can send videos in up to 720p resolution on WhatsApp. If the video has a higher resolution, it will be automatically downscaled to 720p.

How to Send HD-quality Pictures on WhatsApp

Sending an HD-quality picture on WhatsApp is just as easy as sharing any other media file.

  1. First, open the chat where you want to send a high-resolution picture in WhatsApp.
  2. Tap the paper clip icon next to the typing field.
  3. A pop-up will appear – tap “Gallery”.
  4. Select the high-quality image you want to share from your gallery.
  5. Tap the “HD” option in the top toolbar.
  6. Now, choose your desired picture quality from the “Photo quality” popup.
  7. Finally, tap the send icon to share the picture in HD quality.

How to Send HD-quality Videos on WhatsApp

Besides sharing photos in HD quality, you can also send videos in HD resolution on WhatsApp. Even though 720p resolution videos take up more space, the increase in quality is totally worth it. The process of sharing HD videos on WhatsApp is very similar to sharing regular videos.

  1. First, open WhatsApp and go to the chat where you want to send a high-definition (HD) video.
  2. Next, click on the paperclip icon next to the text field.
  3. Select the Gallery option and choose the HD video you want to send.
  4. Now, click on the HD icon in the top toolbar.
  5. From the Media quality pop-up, choose the HD quality to share your video in 720p resolution.
  6. Finally, click on the send icon to send the video.

Once you send a video in HD quality, it will be labeled as HD in your WhatsApp conversations.

Just like with HD pictures, WhatsApp will compress HD videos and let you share them in 720p resolution. So even if you have large video files with 4K or 8K resolution, WhatsApp will compress them for sharing in up to 720p resolution.

WhatsApp Will Compress Your Media Files

Over the years, users have found effective tricks to send photos in their original resolution on WhatsApp because the messaging service didn’t support HD photo-sharing. But now, you can directly share HD-quality photos on WhatsApp with the new HD picture-sharing feature. And while sharing videos in 720p resolution may not seem like a big deal, it actually makes a significant difference in quality.

Keep in mind that WhatsApp will compress both photos and videos to reduce their file sizes. So, if you want to send a picture in its original quality, we recommend sharing it as a document file. Nevertheless, now that you know how to share HD-quality photos and videos, let me show you how to check if your WhatsApp message has been read.
