Most of the time, we receive images on WhatsApp with captions. It is usually a motivational, news, or fun message where both, image and the words are very important.
When you forward those images to other contacts, the caption is lost and the image is meaningless without it. There is an easy way to forward image with caption on WhatsApp.
You might be surprised to see that this method is not much complex and slightly different from how you are used to forwarding the images.
Just keep in mind that any images you forwarded will become a part of your WhatsApp backup if you enabled it. To avoid it, you can simply disable the backup; read about it here.
On the plus side, when you transfer your WhatsApp on a different device, these images will be restored as well. If you need to move WhatsApp from iPhone to Android, read our post about how to do it in the best possible way.
