No, there weren't any posts with pictures. At least not to speak of. Nothing was lost or wiped out. We are fortunate that this site has never had any data loss like that.
A normal membership has 5Mb of attachment storage. The size limit for attachments is about 500Kb. That means that a normal, unpaid, membership has the capacity for 10,000 attachments of 500Kb each.
I'm probably one of the most picture-heavy posters here. I happen to use a photo-hosting site rather than attaching stuff, but I doubt I have posted more than 500 pictures in the past 10 years. If I were to choose to use attachments instead of photo-hosting, I could do it at that rate for 200 years.
Now, 500Kb makes a pretty nice, detailed picture at 1024X768, and 500Kb is a decent size for text attachments. It's a little small for .pdf files but, as a point of reference, I was able to get the cheat sheets to under the limit.
In short, we don't know what the dealio is.
