Based on advice from a previous SEO consultant, when he loaded our website into a WordPress format, he advised to have our images linked directly to our domain database image file instead of to the WP media file.
This worked perfectly fine until the 3.9 upgrade. We started noticing issues. Once we upgraded to 3.9 we noticed issues with tiny MCE not showing the icons.

The problem is that the image displays are all messed up now. Some of the images are as though the image doesn't exist and just shows a placeholder. Other image sizes are maximized to the page width, even though we specified a smaller display. I even went out and created thumbnails of the images, loaded the thumbnail and it still maximizes to the page width, and when you click on the photo it displays the thumbnail. Pretty Photo doesn't seem to function correctly now. We are using a
Then, our images were not correctly displaying except for those that were coded directly to a WP Table. Those seem to display. When we try to update or change any images and use our domain image file, then we have issues with the images. Some don't display at all, some images display at at the maximum page width.

We are at the point of considering ditching WordPress completely and trying another website creation tool, but that means moving over 100 webpages.... what are our options?
