That's what I want to know. Duplicate deletion programs suggest deleting a pile of whatsapp images. So the question is:
If I sent Image A to 10 people, I get ten images on the computer? (That would be kind of dumb, I have to say.) Then I use a dupe-deleting program and delete 9 of them. WHAT DO I HAVE in the chats? A blank frame in 9 of them? Or... what?
Thanks in advance!

If you have sent it to 10 people you have sent 10 messages each one containing the image. So 10 copies of it

Amazing that none of the guides to de-duping mention that you'll cripple your whatsapp chats if you do it.
Amazing. Glad I asked.
Also, whatsapp should change that. Placeholders pointing to a single image.
