    hi all

    I have just created my first blog… http://desaturate.wordpress.com/

    It’s a photo blog, but I’m finding that some of the photo links are degrading after a while (not finding the uploaded image on wordpress servers). They seem fine at first.

    Can this be resolved and prevented?

    thanks in advance

    We need specific links to the posts you’re talking about. We will need to see an example.

    I see the pictures just fine. Has it cleared up for you yet? All your pictures come up just fine for me.

    Sometimes there’s a temporary server issue and some pictures go down for a few minutes. I wonder if that is what happened?

    I don’t see any pictures in the link you provided. It must be the server issue.

    I see the picture in “snap” and it appears if I click on the empty rectangle where the image should be.

    …and it’s not specific to this particular image, it’s happened a few times… that’s why I say the link ‘degrades’. I’m not attempting to correct this in this instance… hoping to get a resolution to the occurring problem… I’m pretty sure I’m doing everything right.

    In fact… I’m looking in the ‘media library’ and this image has disappeared along with the ‘crow’ image… I’d love to know what’s happening!

    @stevedeer, you provided a link to http://desaturate.wordpress.com/2008/10/19/carolines-wedding/ but the image referenced in that post is for a different blog http://stevedeer.files.wordpress.com/2008/10/c1.jpg This could have happened if you started your blog at stevedeer.wordpress.com and then did an export/import to move the posts, pages, and comments to desaturate.wordpress.com. Since the stevedeer.wordpress.com blog has been deleted, references to image files uploaded to that blog will not work any more.

    Note that you were probably seeing the images continue to work for a while even after you deleted the stevedeer.wordpress.com blog because the images were cached.
