I exported and then imported my gedcom file, but lost my image links.
I get an error message such as
The link from “Melvin Jay Norman” to “@F5701@” has been deleted.

The link from “Melvin Jay Norman” to “@F6075@” has been deleted.

The link from “Melvin Jay Norman” to “@F6076@” has been deleted.

The link from “Melvin Jay Norman” to “@M8730@” has been deleted.
What did I do wrong?

P.S. I recently changed my webiste to https. Could this impact?

If the link was deleted, it is because the record that it points to does not exist.

Do you have these media objects in the GEDCOM file?

They were all okay when I downloaded my gedcom. I immediately uploaded, with the results shown.
I ALSO get a red flag on my Sources, which now show in red.
All my "duplicate" images now disappeared.
I also get MANY errors like:
INDI I006 has a FAMS link to F006. F006 does not exist.
INDI I006 has a FAMC link to F004. F004 does not exist.

OOPS! The gedcom file size has also been reduced from about 28M to 19M. Back to backup.
