You're sending WhatsApp photos wrong – learn this popular hack in seconds

TOOK a stunning pic and want to share it with friends on WhatsApp?

Sadly you've been doing it wrong – the photos you've been sending are not showing off their true beauty.

Little do some know, WhatsApp actually compresses photos.

This means the size of the photos are reduced and they'll send quickly, but it also causes a slight reduction in quality.

Most of us don't notice – or care – most of the time but if you have a particularly amazing shot you want to show at its fullest, this quick tip might be the pic-k for you.

TikTok user ITForDummies has shown how easy it is to do.

Start by opening WhatsApp and going to Settings.

From there, select Storage and Data.

At the bottom, you'll see Media Upload Quality. Tap it.

And data saver is a good option if you're running out of data.
