You have to make sure each time that you post you give it a different, unique name. Try adding numbers after the name of the photo eg something like grandadmat2 

Have a look at this, it might help

or just click on "unattach" on the old post and add the new post there with the same name :)

I always add -KG to all my photos/snippets.
That makes them unique to me!

I think (but not sure) that RC software doesn't like the same named attachment even if it's from someone else.
Could be just on the thread? ::)
