    Doesn't seem to be sending, other files send fine. Tried to save as favourites but didn't send.

    Anybody else having issues?

    Thanks...

    i had the same issue too. The problem is that screenshots get saved as png and for some reason, whatsApp does not allow sending pngs. So i had to save the image as jpeg in my computer and then use it for sending through WhatsApp. This sucks !

    The only work around I have found for this was to use Thumba photo editor to save the image as a jpeg. I'm sure there are other apps which can do the same for free.

    Another work around - Email the screen shot to yourself, download the image to your saved images and then it works. Maybe the file format changes? Deffo works though...

    It doesn't give you the option from the pic but you can open whatsapp and send through attachments....that's the only way. :)

    This is the answer. You have to select 'albums' and then pick the screenshot.

    Hey , I also faced this issue but I know a quick solution , just download (picture rename)(Coolcat software) from windows phone store, it saves your picture in saved pictures folder and then you can send your pics by whatsapp
