New day, a new guide dedicated to the WhatsApp messaging app, the most widespread, used and known in the world.

Today, in particular, we will look at how to overcome a big limit of WhatsApp, that is the impossibility of sending photos and images to the original resolution to our contacts. 

Maybe you already know, maybe you didn’t know it, but it doesn’t matter.

The fact is that WhatsApp to date does not allow to send photos and images to original resolution in chats. This means that every time we send photos to our friends on WhatsApp, the quality is automatically lowered by the program. 

The reason? It’s simple: with the compression applied by WhatsApp to images, you save MB of Internet traffic (and mobile data). Too bad that at the same time the quality of the photo is lowered a lot (which often, being taken by non-top of the range phones, is already low).

In most cases, users are aware of this drop in quality, but the most attentive and demanding will surely have noticed that the images exchanged on WhatsApp are “less beautiful” and with a different resolution than the original one.

And so, until today, users who needed to exchange photos while maintaining the original quality and resolution had to use alternative services (email, cloud storage or other services) to send images without lowering or reducing quality and resolution.

But today things change: finally, even on WhatsApp, you can send photos and images at original resolution, thus avoiding the loss of quality.

But how can you send photos to WhatsApp without lowering quality and resolution? I’ll explain it to you in the following guide, which is divided between Android and iOS.
