Posting images that come straight from your smartphone and checking them with the Facebook app might seem like an ordinary situation, especially if you’re the type who likes to snap pictures or take videos all the time. However, if you’ve got a keener eye, you would notice that uploading your photos and videos to the social media portal will actually have a lower quality than your original file. This is because the social network prioritizes speed over quality, which means it does ultimately ruin the image or video being uploaded. However, there is a way for you to upload the HD quality of your image into social media portal. Read on to learn how to do that.
Uploading Sharper Photos and Videos From Your Phone to Facebook
Step 1 – Uploading HD-quality photos and videos to the desktop version of Facebook is a minimal affair, because all you have to do is click on a tick box to do it. However, the app bares a different story. The first thing you would have to do is, of course, open the app, and head on to the menu section. This is the portion of the app with the three horizontal lines on it, hence it doesn’t matter if you’re using an iOS or Android device as it would still look pretty similar with each other.
Step 2 – Now head on to Settings, and then tap on “Account Settings.” It should bring you to a different portion of the Settings menu. In here, scroll down until you see a menu item called “Videos and Photos.” Give it a good tap, and a bunch of other menu items should appear. If this is the first time accessing this portion of the Facebook app, then all the items here should be at their default state.
Step 3 – It is in the “Videos and Photos” section that you should be able to see two “Upload HD” sliders, one for videos and the other for your photos. Just slide these sliders to their “on” position and you should be able to upload your photos and videos with HD quality into the social media portal when uploading through your smartphone or mobile device.
Step 4 – You should now be able to see a clear difference whenever you’re uploading photos and videos into Facebook when using your smartphone or mobile device. The resolutions will be higher, but there still might be some file compression involved. At the very least, your photos and videos won’t look like something that was taken from a 1990’s-era webcam.
