Prepare to see a noticeable change in the quality of the photos in your tweet timelines. Prepare to see Twitter in a whole new light; starting today, both iOS and Android users will be able to tweet (and view) pictures in 4K.
According to the company, all Twitter users can now upload and display 4K photos in their tweets. You must enable 4K images either inside the Twitter app or in your device’s picture settings to see it in full effect.
It’s time to tweet those high-resolution photos: 4K images can now be uploaded and viewed on Android and iOS devices. The web app of Twitter also allows for higher-resolution images (up to 4096 x 4096), but the smartphone apps were limited to just half that, with a maximum resolution of 2048 x 2048.
Upgrade your high-resolution picture preferences in the “Data usage” settings to enable uploading and obtaining pictures in 4K. With the ability to now upload higher quality representations of their work, the extra stuff could have prominent inference for photographers and artists.
Earlier this year, the company began testing the 4K image upload feature for mobile devices. It appears that the tests were satisfactory, as the service is now being rolled out to all users starting today. Most phone camera images surpass these resolution limits, but they won’t upload in less quality. But, you’ll be able to see them in much higher resolution than before once they’re published.
If the image is not in 4K mode, it will reduce the file size and reduce the resolution to 2K. The 4K mode compressed the file to reduce its size while maintaining the 4K resolution. The good thing about the web portal has the same resolution in the storage file.
The app will now display the entire picture on the timeline. There might be a limit on how tall the photos appear on the timeline, but I didn’t have access to this feature at the time of writing so that I couldn’t search. Irrespective of the photo orientation, the default image is not in portrait mode; it will be in landscape mode. Twitter used Artificial Intelligence and ML algorithms to create a suitable image that enables in the new tab.
