If it's a photo it'll be sent via MMS, so you need to make sure you've got MMS enabled on your carrier account and the MMS settings on your phone (carrier will supply this info, usually automatically straight to phone).
I would of expected a web link to have been displayed instead to view it via a browser.

Hope this helps.

Do a web search for "<carrier name> MMS settings"

On the phone go to: Settings > cellular + SIM > SIM settings > add MMS APN and make sure the values match those found in your search
