[SOLVED] Watermarks Broken/Missing

Somehow in the process of moving things around my watermarks have broken. I checked the location I believe them to be and they are there (although they are listed like 'watermark_png' instead of 'watermark.png' but that seems right?). In the Watermarks Admin page it shows all four watermarks and their names but the photos of the watermarks are broken images. I attempted to transfer watermarks I know are working over from a backup into the location but the problem persists. I would suspect, in theory, I could reload the images through the Watermarks admin but then I will lose the records of what is already watermarked and all 28,000 of my photos are using one of the 4 (not all the same one or that would be easy enough). It seems I'm not the only one that has had this problem before:
However her fix was simply to remove the watermark and that is just not an option for me.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

After trying multiple different things (no real aim, just trying anything that might help) the images and watermarks now load correctly. They can be removed and added without problem.

HOWEVER, I still get broken image icons in all watermark administration pages. In the admin page, on the page where I add the watermarks to a new album/photo, etc. It will add it and display it correctly on the photo itself, it just shows broken in the admin pages. I completely uninstalled and deleted the watermarks module and reinstalled brand new from the gallery download (not my own backup, a fresh install of the module) and it didn't change a thing. I tried deleting the watermarks and replacing them which also did nothing. I'm completely at a loss.

Any ideas at all?

Ok, I have absolutely no idea what I did as I've been trying everything under the sun, but it's FIXED. Hooray!!!!

I hope no one else runs across the frustrating problem as I'm certainly no help to them. :-)
