    That's because they were not sent as a text (SMS) but as an MMS message*, which has file size limitations so it automatically reduces file size = image quality.
    Also, either Facebook or Instagram, or both, may have limits on imported pics (I don't use either so I wouldn't know), so they get (again) reduced in file size = image quality.

    Send hi-res pictures via email, Instant Messaging, cloud link, or LFT (Large File Transfer service) to keep them hi-res!

    *MMS messages (pics, vids, and audio files) always get sent via mobile networks! Even if you are otherwise connected to the internet via e.g. WiFi! MMS is slowest, most expensive, and lowest quality.
