Check the symlink to your images directory in your catalog root. In the 
standard foundation demo it should point to 
/your/home/dir/htdocsroot/catname/images. If it points to a wrong or 
non-existent location, that is your problem (and in this case the catalog 
error.log would contain corresponding "could not write" and "can't open 
file" errors). Also, ensure that the interchange user has write permission 
on the target directories.
