Can anyone tell me how to change the photo resolution on the Samsung Galaxy S20+?
I simply cannot find a way to do this! When I search for this I find lots of results showing how very easy it is to do, by just going into the camera, selecting the settings and then choosing a photo resolution. The problem is, whilst that option might've been there in the past, it's not there now! I just cannot find any way to select the resolution for photos I take (and I therefore can't control much space they'll use).
The settings must have changed with a software update, but where are they now? This sort of thing should be easy!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Lets set basics right - resolution from 4000 px to 800px to save a pic for web , whatsapp is not same as changing form factor . You are traveling on a wrong track. No one can save normal pic as 128KB or 256KB size with built in app. Earlier the app was good. Some dumb programmers have removed that option. Samsung will lose market share and no phones can be popular with this issue.
You are right .
Most moderators are closing it , saying solved. They do not understand aspect ratio vs resolution, then these folks should not be supporting camera issues.
M30 M31 has same issue . NO ONE can save any picture in kilo byte size or 800 px type of resolution. The bulletin board so called experts are actiing as novice here.
AndrewL , that would be a stupid solution since world of whatsapp and every image editor can save and edit jpg ... not HEIF which is more of video format. Just by putting a new jargon, you seems to have not understood the issue.
Simply said " any photo clicked occupies 2.5 MB & above on internal device memory and there is no option to save images as few kilo bytes" . This has issues for recipient, transfer , device to cloud, cloud storage and everywhere m whatsapp memory buldging ..." . Your answer does not meet any requirements of end user.
Do basic reading about the issue.
I know it's not optimal, but there you go. The simpler best free app to solve this (though not the first option on google play). You can even override original files making it as practical as possible:
Also, Cram (paid), that has an automatic compression (but not resize) feature as soon as you take a pic (it's bugging with my s21 FE, unfortunately):
This is ridiculous. First Samsung does away with headphone jacks, and now we have no way of setting picture resolution. Fast losing confidence in this brand.
