As I understand it, this could be a Gaia-wide server problem: maybe its just me or maybe its sitewide im not sure (images) but other Gaians are facing similar problems with missing graphics.

However, if you have a profile with a central centered "about me" stand-alone panel, and you post your graphics under the "about me" section, you will NOT lose your images.

I recently changed my profile to a v2 with a central panel, to get my images back.

I changed my profile to one with a central panel, this evening, and it took me several times to get my background image of seamless tiled rutabagas (from TinyPic) to appear. Instead, I was viewing lines of sparkly gold bars (image repeated) from somewhere?

I went to Gaia's test forum, and the background seamless tiled images hosted from TinyPic showed true. Eventually I plan to insert my original rutabaga image [as from my previous profile] into the profile code but this is a test project for another day. LOL ~Gruelgrimm

EDIT: I was able to change my background wallpaper in a different way -- seamless tiles with rutabaga icons,creating stripes this morning -- using two favorite graphic editing programs -- GIMP2 and Irfanview -- and the results were favorable. cat_3nodding

My profile also has a central main panel, rich with images. But I also have side-panels, which contain content with images. But I think the point to understand, is that my Profile V2 does not have any stand-alone images to lose.

My profile is an older one, layout by Confelicity, and part of the Gaia Tools directory, which I tinkered with a little, and changed the background image, as well s some subtle link color changes. Here is a link to my profile: Profile of Mistress Leac-Neko

I also reworked the profile of DeeDee Gambino to a pink-shaded one, so although it is based on the similar layout by Confelicity, the colour shift gives the Gambino profile a different feeling. Profile of DeeDee Gambino

So, yes, all of the images stay within their borders -- without any image loss
