If we click on the HD symbol, which appears in those images that have this quality, We can choose the quality of the photo between Standard Quality and HD Quality. Choose the HD option, in my case I have sent a photo with a quality of 5120 x 3413 pixels.

El maximum size that WhatsApp would have allowed me without this option would be only 1500 x 1000 pixels.

Although sending files as attachments is still the best option to send the original file at the highest quality, but the HD option is a great alternative. Simple and effective.
