Why do these images show broken when the URL isn't?

The first time this happened, I just blew it off as an anomaly but now it's happened again and it's beginning to annoy me...

http://pics.livejournal.com/susandennis/gallery/00005r4x?page=1

I always load all my pictures the same way every time. I use them only for beautifying (?) my LJ entries.

The one that is 5 rows down and 9 pix over can be viewed via the URL of http://pics.livejournal.com/susandennis/pic/0007k47y - shows up fine in every browser I have. BUT when I stick that URL into an img code, it renders the dreaded broken image X



Ditto with http://pics.livejournal.com/susandennis/pic/0001ykr6



But, http://pics.livejournal.com/susandennis/pic/0008dtgy off that very same page - uploaded the very same way - works fine...



What's going on? Why do some work and some don't? I'd like for all of them to be usable in IMG SRC codes. What am I missing?

The broken pictures don't seem to have their permissions set for public viewing.

check the security on the image. they are prolly private or set to a friend group. they need to be public for everyone to see them. they can however be in a private gallery with public security on the images.
also, i believe that they cannot be in the "unsorted" gallery.

doh! and bingo. A whole bunch had various security settings. I changed them all to public and even figured out what I was doing that was making them non-public.

Thanks!!

and, while I'm here, thanks for the edit/link/etc style layer for Haven - it's a perfect addition to the style!

I found it from this entry http://www.livejournal.com/community/s2haven/10569.html (actually from there to here http://www.livejournal.com/customize/advanced/layerbrowse.bml?id=2439010)- so, actually, I guess I 'lifted' it from you!!

Good code lives forever!! Thank you!

Yup! duh. Changed them all to public and problem solved. Note to self: Be sure and look at the problem from a logged out position! Thank you.
