It is worth noting that there are two types of images that can be opened on WhatsApp Web. One of them, with a camera symbol, is for capturing instant images. You can also edit photos through it, but today we’re going to learn how to edit images that are (almost) ready for upload.

After clicking the photo or portrait icon, a new window opens so that a search for the file can be performed on the computer. After selecting the image you want to send, click on it and then on the “Open” button. You can also tap twice on the photo to make this action happen.

When this happens, the image will be available in a preview on WhatsApp Web. It is from this point that the editing tools are presented. Check all the icons arranged right above the image to see which ones will be needed at the moment. There are emojis, stickers, text tools, pencil/brush for free drawing, image cropping and rotating, and arrows that can undo and redo actions.

If you want to add emojis, click on the first symbol to see a list of visual options. You can also use the built-in search bar to search for a specific emoji. When you find your favorite, click on it to add it to the image and reposition it. The same can be done on the stickers icon, in which you can see all the options that are saved in the internal gallery on WhatsApp.

If you want to write something or use a pencil, click on the following icons. Below, you can change the text or pencil colors. It is also possible to choose the desired font and remove the box that is at the bottom of the text, obtaining transparency. With the pencil/brush, there is the option to increase the stroke size next to the colors.

To crop, rotate or reposition the image however you like, click on the next symbol, which is similar to a square. Some dots will be arranged around the photo. Click on one of them to cut, previewing the cut darker part. The icons arranged below the image indicate how to rotate it, starting from left to bottom or right to bottom.

When the edits are complete, click on the complete button located in the far right. The image will be ready to be sent, either in the traditional way or in the single view, available in the message bar, whose symbol is the number 1 inside a dotted circle. Make a caption if necessary, including text and emojis.
