I had to log off wifi on my phone just to send a freaking photo.
I think that explains it.
Either you're on a different WiFi setup or if you're on the same one, it has lost some of the quality (speed and/or clarity) it had earlier in the day.
Something about your WiFi setup is now different.

That's what I was wondering. But I have the wifi only ipad mini and I can surf and be on apps and it's still just as fast. It just seems to be sending pics on imessage. Sending texts is no problem. I've attempted every thing I've found doing searches for this issue including restarting / reboots, turning imessage on and off and rebooting. But its doing this on my iphone too. I'm frustrated and getting a little angry.
And when I logged off wifi on my iphone it sent the pic as a text message. Not even in imessage.

Actually, the issue might be with your message recipient's WiFi. I should have mentioned that earlier.

I hate to keep coming up with counters, but I've tried several people including myself (cell iphone from ipad) and get the same result. I guess I just give up and try again in the morning and if I get the same issue I can call apple and see if they have some excuse. I haven't seen an influx of posts by people having this issue today. But I have located some posts from this month about the same issue and nothing working.

I stand corrected.............I just checked the pics I sent earlier and they were on my phone and they were sent as texts and not on imessage. So now I'm beyond confused!!!! UGH!

So after your correction, the iPhone's behavior is sort of irrelevant. When iMessage does not work for your iPhone, it will send an MMS message using your cellular carrier.
So iMessage is not working for either your iPhone or iPad. Again, it could be that either your recipient is, say, not on WiFi at all or has an issue on their end. Or it could be that now that it's a few hours different, your WiFi has many more users and is not as robust as earlier.

I mean your WiFi carrier has more users, not your specific WiFi. The WiFi carriers do some sharing, as you probably know.

Still doesn't work today.
