After change permalink structure how redirect attachment url to parent post url (1 post)

    My website name is livewireworld.info

    I use this plugin. But my issue is little bit different.

    My permalink structure was /%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%/ before 21st January, 2013. I redirected Attachment url to parent post url through Yoast's seo plugin and it works well.

    But after 21st January, 2013, I change my permalink structure. /%category%/%postname%/%post_id%/
    and I redirect my old permalink structure to new permalink structure. (with Simple 301 Redirects plugin)

    I uncheck Attachment url to parent post url in Yoast's seo plugin and then once again check the box of Attachment url to parent post url. So that refresh Yoast's seo plugin and it works normally. But it works only with new permalink structure (/%category%/%postname%/%post_id%/), not working with the old permalink structure(/%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%/). And therefore it is result in so many 404 errors.

    Attachment url to parent post url is working only for those post which I published after 21st January, 2013. Before this date I published almost 594 post and for all those post, Attachment url to parent post url doesn't work. One solution is there with Simple 301 Redirects and it is that I have to redirect my each image of those 594 posts to their parent post url. You can understand, I have to redirect almost 3000 + images one by one.

    Google's Panda update hits my website badly. Because in my website almost 3000 + images and most of with attachment url (not found).
    I have trying lot to find out solution since last 20 days. But I have no solution. So kindly request you, Please suggest me how to get rid of this issue. I hope, I will get positive response.
