Picture embedding wonky

A method I have used to post pictures has suddenly semi-failed.

As far as I know, there is no easy way for me to upload pictures into a post here (if there is, I'd love to learn about it), but in LiveJournal it's straightforward. So I start a post on LiveJournal and upload my picture into that, specifying that I want a link from the 300px image in the post to the full-size original. Then I copy the resulting HTML, including the URL of the picture at LiveJournal, and paste it into a new post here. When I save this post I have it automatically crosspost to LiveJournal, and after checking them both I delete the draft there.

This has worked for me for years. But now, although the LiveJournal post works just as intended, showing the 300px picture linked to the full-size one, the post here shows only the alt text, linked. See
