osCommerce: Product Images not Showing / not Displaying

I had a problem with the images not showing after I created a product with my osCommerce installation. I’ve installed osCommerce Online Merchant v2.2 RC2a.

I found that images name was truncated as shown here:

My product name length was greater than 64 characters so the name was cut off. So I had to increase the character limit of the product name.

Then I had to click on the table ‘products’ in the left column and then click the pencil icon corresponding to the product name that is too short. For me it was ‘estate_street_partners/ultra-trust-irrevocable-trust-asset-protection-book-front-cover-sm.png’ that was truncated.
