I believe Whatsapp compresses images heavily to something meagre like 30KB or thereabouts. It won't cost the world...If you want to share a good and proper photo, you need to upload it to Flickr or OneDrive and share the link instead of the compress image. (Flickr and OneDrive (and Google+? etc...) allow upload of full res images - even the Lumia 1020's 38MP monsters....

[mod edit - the consensus is (aka CTPAHHIK's investigation) the images on Whatsapp are compressed to 100-160KB. Still not too bad]

I think Whatsapp compressed to somewhere around 100KB range.

Oh, okay... I must have hit an older page? Saw a few "30 - 40KB" answers...

Look into media folder of Whatapp.
90KB - 160KB for me
