Good afternoon, ugggg, the reason photos turn out pixilated when sent is because Samsung messages uses an older standard known as SMS for text and MMS for photos and videos. When they're sent over the air, they're compressed in order for this to be achieved. The methods that you could use to bypass this are using messenger services such as Facebook Messenger, Instagram messenger, whatsapp or even saving photos and videos in Google Drive and sharing the links to whoever you want to sent high resolution photos or videos to.
