You can see this image on your contributions page, under the RPG tab, under Items -> RPG. That's separate from Items -> RPG Items (which you linked to), and also separate from Items -> RPG Family. I don't pretend to fully comprehend the distinctions between these three categories in the RPG domain, but yeah RPG Family (all Cthulhu books) != RPG (non 1ed Ctulhu books which can be used together) != RPG Item (single Ctulhu book), and the images for each of these three categories list separately under your contributions.

If you submiit the image to YOUR personal gallery, then you don't go through Geekmod.

Your personal gallery:
http://boardgamegeek.com/images/user/14272/pethulhu

You added the image to the game's picture gallery, so there it is...
game -> http://boardgamegeek.com/rpg/310/call-of-cthulhu-2nd-6th-edi...
game's gallery -> http://boardgamegeek.com/images/family/310/call-of-cthulhu-2...

Thanks to you both
i know that it can be found on BGG
I just wondered why it was not included in my usual galery.
If you don't know the delicate differences, then I don't know as well

Confusion at my end see OP response below:

Uploading an image to an item's(game etc) gallery will not show up in your gallery.

Your gallery and images you upload to other galleries are always separate.

If you want an image in your gallery you need to upload it directly, likewise if you want an image to show up in an item's gallery you need to add it directly. If you want an image to show up both in your gallery and in an item's gallery then you need to upload it to both separately.

But most of images are loaded to an "item's" gallery, like my top thumbed one:

this one was loaded to Arkham Horror, not to my personal gallery
and it still shows here:

Ok well your image gallery only has 3 images in it:
http://boardgamegeek.com/images/user/14272/pethulhu

What your looking at is the images you've uploaded to Geek items (contributions):
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/images/thing/all?username=pethu...

Ok to confirm I also can't see this image and think I should be able to (other RPG items are viewable and I've played with the filters).

My guess would be that this is just a bit of a lag and it should show up in the next 48 hours.

Sorry for my confusion here - In the meantime I'll move you back to bugs but I think it'll come right by itself.

An "RPG" (grouping of RPG Items) is not a "thing", so an image for an RPG - such as this one - won't ever show in the "thing" gallery (which groups boardgames, rpg items and (I suspect strongly) video game items - the "main" entries for the three domains).

Board Game Publisher images, RPG Publisher images and RPG Designer images also don't show in that "thing" gallery Peter links to. (And Peter, as Liam and Herb have explained, that gallery is not what's commonly referred to as "your" (personal) gallery, because that's the gallery linked to at the top (white letters on dark blue background) of all your profile pages, which has only three images in it.
