image link urls not working properly when posting images from my computer.

    Question

  • I am new to live writer. ANd the way it handles images loaded from my computer is like nothing I have ever seen before. could someone explain the following to me:

    When I add a picture to my post, say charlie.png

    in the source view the src shows as $charlie_thumb.png

    (OK this is weirdness 1, and I cant seem to find any documentation about it. but we move on....)

    The image is in a link (a/anchor), and the link shows the href as $charlie[2].png

    <p><a href="$charlie[2].png"><img style="background-image: none; border-right-width: 0px; padding-left: 0px; padding-right: 0px; display: inline; border-top-width: 0px; border-bottom-width: 0px; border-left-width: 0px; padding-top: 0px" title="charlie" border="0" alt="charlie" src="$charlie_thumb.png" width="244" height="139"></a></p>

    (see prev. parens.)

    Now I post (to blogger). all is good, except that I have installed a jquery/lightbox plugin.

    By all is good I mean that if I disable the plugin the link works, but

    if i enable the plugin the lighbox opens but hangs as it waits for the picture.

    which would make you think the problem is with the jquery, but hold on, it is NOT:

    I go to blogger and look at my img and link src/href and what do I see but:

    <p>
    <a href="http://lh6.ggpht.com/-NTcgUCndOAw/TiYyxGqzNlI/AAAAAAAAAEA/a56afjZOpaE/s1600-h/charlie%25255B2%25255D.png"><img style="background-image: none; border-right-width: 0px; padding-left: 0px; padding-right: 0px; display: inline; border-top-width: 0px; border-bottom-width: 0px; border-left-width: 0px; padding-top: 0px" title="charlie" border="0" alt="charlie" src="http://lh4.ggpht.com/-9hBemkOwSG8/TiYyxx32UbI/AAAAAAAAAEE/_LWmVnezang/charlie_thumb.png?imgmax=800" width="244" height="139"></a></p>

    note all the gobbedygook e.g.

    http://lh6.ggpht.com/-NTcgUCndOAw/TiYyxGqzNlI/AAAAAAAAAEA/a56afjZOpaE/s1600-h/charlie%25255B2%25255D.png

    especially

    s1600-h/charlie%25255B2%25255D.png

    If I go to the image src and link href as is in my browser, they work fine. I get a small image and large image respectively.

    I tried to replace the "%25"'s with "%" since I though it was a problem with the url encoding but that didnt work. I tried doing lots of things to the gobbledy gook, no good.

    But if I replace the link href with the src url, the lighbox works, but of course the image is small, not large.

    BUT, http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/blogger/thread?tid=72a6fd72aac71681&hl=en

    so if I remove the -h from after the 2600, ALL OF THE FOLLOWING work!!!!!!!!!

    http://lh6.ggpht.com/-NTcgUCndOAw/TiYyxGqzNlI/AAAAAAAAAEA/a56afjZOpaE/s1600/charlie%25255B2%25255D.png

    WTFUIUWT?

    Is there a way to get this to work properly directly from wlw so I dont have to edit my link every time from blogger?
