That what I said here: viewtopic.php?p=15654491#p15654491

Placing these images in the directory of a style makes no sense
That's besides the point. And anyway, placing it a personal image in /images makes just as little or as much sense as in a style folder because an update or upgrade may replace these directories (depending on how it's done - the update/grade instructions do mention how to avoid that luckily).
The safest way would be to put those images in a new directory in the forumroot. e.g. /MyImages
Spelling is freeware, which means you can use it for free.
On the other hand, it is not open source, which means you cannot change it or publish it in a modified form.

Allright with you
But during an update procedure we exclude the images folder, finally if we do this properly

And I agree with that, but in this particular case just mentioning that the image has to be placed in the images folders, doesn't help in explaining why his placement of the image didn't produce the expected result.
