    I recently moved my WordPress blog to a new domain name. Now I'm trying to point my images to the new url but I can't edit the image url. I've tried several things including just going to the Uploads and trying to edit there but to no avail.

    Any help is greatly appreciated as I have a large number of images to change.

    You could try the Search and replace plugin to chaange the old URL in your posts to the new one.
    It will work if the image files are the same (=moved) and the basic upload structure is the same; e.g.
    old-example.com/wp-content/uploads/2006/12/mypic.jpg

    and you now want to change it to
    new-example.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2006/12/mypic.jpg

    You will replace the old-example.com with new-example.com/wordpress
