I can confirm that this issue persists in LibreOffice 18.104.22.168 on Mac OS 10.9. Bugs have been filed, sometimes closed (“resolved”) but the problem is still here. It makes LO unusable for me.
Using 22.214.171.124 here on a win8 OS, i7 quad core w/ 16gb RAM. Increased all the allowable limits and cache thinking this was the issue.Problem still persists to the point I may have to switch back to an old copy of Word as much as I loathe m$.I create several reports a month.They contain about 100-150 pages with roughly 30-50 images in each report. A lot of the content/format is the same so I simply change the names and dates and pics.Typically, on the 2nd “change image” it crashes and I lose work.

Can help the options in Menu/Tools/Options/LibreOffice/Memory?. Defaults are too lows.
Resetting the user profile, sometimes helps with strange issues:
This definately seems to be the issue. I had been adding pics with the image cashe increased to 60mb, when I reached 63mb I started loosing pictures. Most worryingly I didn’t even get a ‘read error’ the pic was just not there, no space, no place holder. Now with cashe set to 160mb seems stable again. However another factor is what else is running, I found that if I was using 1-by-1 to play music in the background it caused more frequent errors, so that cashe is not inviolate - Vista 2GB RAM
Not fixed. It happened in LibreOffice 126.96.36.199 too.
I am having exactly the same problem. I am trying to make a diary of a vacation, including 90 or so pictures. The pictures are large. However every so often it will autosave, and at that point it will crash and then when I open it up, a bunch of pictures will have disappeared. I wonder if the problem has to do with memory, but I have 16GB of memory and am running Windows 8 64bit, so that doesn’t make sense - unless there is a setting somewhere I need to increase.
I have exactly the same problem in Impress and it seems to be still there in 3.6.4 under windows XP. It is happening for large presentations and frnakly becoming a show stopper since I prepare university lectures.
Seems the same as bug Bug #: 53227

Not resolved, I’m using LibreOffice Writer 188.8.131.52 on Windows 7 32-bits, and have the same problem.
Can a developer please help us and provide a fix?
Not resolved in LibreOffice Writer 4.0 on windows 7.
This is really an egregious bug on what, IMHO, is pretty basic functionality. Can we PLEASE get a fix checked in on this ASAP?
This is stilling happening sometimes, I create 2 photo album-like documents and crashed 3 times.
Besides, it’s somewhat difficult to create a photo album-like document.
Improve the image processing?
FYI- Seems to work much better if you save as MS Word 97/200/2003.
I had the same problem with NeoOffice and OpenOffice. I’ve just moved to LibreOffice 184.108.40.206 which seems much better in many respects (can create .docx) but images still sometimes disappear (not always, which makes it all the more puzzling). I work around the problem by creating and sending PDFs but it’s not really satisfactory.
Like the people above, I’d really appreciate a solution.
This is still happening in OpenOffice 220.127.116.11 but no longer seems to be a problem in NeoOffice 3.3 Patch 5 so I’ve switched back to NeoOffice.
This is still happening with
