are you sending via email or via text message?  I have a S4, but had a S3 as well and could never seem to send a photo via text either.  I simply got in the habit of emailing photos since it was too frustrating to try and text them.

Wish I knew the trick to texting a photo.....

2 days ago my s5 wouldn't send 3 pics. 6 hours later I tried the same pics and it worked. Today 1 of 2 pics went through on a message. Tried sending the other one but still no go. And tried downloading a photo from a sent message but again no go. Checked the service bulletins but it says mms is working normally. Anyone talk with mts yet? I rebooted the phone, checked my data and signal. All in working order.
