After you send your photographs whenever the recipient gets online he/she will see the shared photos in their chat history. It is not required for you to be online in order for the receiver to get the shared photos. Earlier this facility was only available with instant messaging apps like WhatsApp, Line, BBM etc. but now it is possible with Skype 5.2 as well.
