    Hi,
    I noticed that when using your plugin and google custom search, the thumbnails in the search on my site pulled up the hotlink defence picture rather than the regular one, which looked quite ugly, which is why I had to disable the plugin. Is there a way to circumvent this issue?

    Hi again,

    please take a look at this link:
    http://www.gentlemansgazette.com/category/our-best-articles/

    the post about the quilted jacket displays the hotlink defence picture. It must have been indexed 2 months ago. Once I noticed it, I turned off your plugin because I was afraid all pictures would end up looking like that. Any idea whether it could be fixed?

    Hi again ... plugin updated.

    I tested a Google Custom Search and I realized what it was about.

    The problem with this f** google, is that there is NOT a predictive behavior. Some thumbs-images are generated correctly, while others do not.

    I view the issue in my own custom search via publicphoto.org, i searched for articles with recent topic "Galaxy S3" here http://publicphoto.org/google/

    And yes, its a random problem.

    Note:

    - I do not know if this will solve the problem,
    - we can not know until google regenerate images again.
    - I do not even know how often google regenerate images.

    P.S. After update do not forget to enter in plugin configuration and use the "Update Options" button. You should not delete the cache.

    BTW: modify "Hotlink Image Transparency" from 65 to 50 or lower ... images wll be more clear, but all with watermark. (Watermark png opacity is from "Watermark Opacity Value".)

    However, you still have to wait until google will regenerate thumbs-images ... and nobody knows how when!

    It seems like google just generates old pieces irregularly. The best way to test it is to do it with new content because it should be indexed within just a few days after it was posted. At least, that's the experience I had in the past.

    Thanks for looking into it. I am obviously not the only one to experience it, just the first one to mention it.

    until now, so far it seems that not all watermarked-images have disappeared from custom-search ...
