Bad quality photos when taking them through messaging app

When I take a photo using Telegram or Signal it appears to be blurry and out of focus. That happens before sending it.

I think this might be an Open Camera issue, as I have tried downloading the aformentioned message apps from both Apps and F-droid and I still have the same problem.

Also, when I take a picture opening the camera and I send it, its quality is much better.

Are you pushing LONG on camera symbol in telegram ?
short push: build in low quality camera
long push: system camera with all extra setup

if it is the same in signal, I don’t know

Wow, I did not know that was even possible. I checked it on both apps and it works for Telegram, but not for Signal. At least now I am able to send propper pics on Telegram… Do you know if there is any way I could put the system camera when I tap without pressing? Thank you!

In telegram ?? No, there is no way to use the system cam permanent.
