Nice one, this will be useful, run into issues with this all the time.
I really wish all images would be shortcodes if they are in the Media

All the text works (I think), and I've deleted the .htaccess file and recreated it by renewing the permalinks. But still, for images that go in posts, I have the directory in their path, so they call fail.
