This is definitely one major problem 90% of WhatsApp messenger users face and is obviously not a good thing.
Sending images is a norm on WhatsApp and I can attest to millions of images being sent across right now even as you come across this post.
Talk more about WhatsApp status where we have lots of crazy contacts who updates full gallery albums on their status.
This post is specifically for those who are pissed whenever they try sending a studio picture, gallery images, and the others across to their contacts, family, friends, and colleagues on WhatsApp but always have the image quality/size dropped.
That should be the past after getting to read through all steps below.
I would guide you on a simple way to how you could send full HD quality images on WhatsApp as documents without their quality/size being dropped or reduced. Surprising, but it is true!
The image below shows a particular studio picture sent to me before and after following the method of sending images as documents on WhatsApp I’d show to you now.
send picture as document on whatsapp : Image size/quality
I was surprised to see an image size of 24kb, I imagined the quality drop and decided not to waste my time downloading it, because definitely, it’s going to be a NO! NO!!
So I had to do a VN (Voice note) directing him on how to send me the full HD picture on WhatsApp as a document without image quality/size had been dropped.
The second image to the right shows the same image with its original size and quality!
To my surprise, it was actually a 4 MB-sized picture that was previously dropped to a 24kb download.
It’s pretty annoying I must confess! Good thing is that you don’t need to send full HD images via Mails, Telegram, Cloud e.t c anymore.
All you have to do is simply follow the method I am about dropping down right away to send any image as a document file on WhatsApp without losing the quality and image size.
How to send image as document on WhatsApp without image quality/size dropped
If you must know, gbwhatsapp users can simply get this applied directly on the share and send settings which can be found on the WhatsApp mod settings. That should be a story for another day!

send picture as doc on whatsapp Step 3
Finally, it’s done!
Now WhatsApp image is sent successfully as a document and the receiver gets to receive the image just precisely as it is on your device, without image size/quality being dropped.
What to observe after sending a WhatsApp pic as a document:
Observe the image size as seen on the second image with id number 4833.png to be 1.30MB, and after sending still retains its original quality and size.
This is far the best way to get images sent across to your contacts on WhatsApp without having to edit the image extension to a document file extension.
