With Server Installation of  "LibreOffice rc  German UI/Locale [Build-ID:  932b512] on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit)  I see some empty placeholders (?) instead of pictures in reporter's sample, but so what, simply a damaged document? Unzipping reporter's sample document i see several empty .svm what might have been 

Thank you for your report. Unfortunately important info is missing.
Your description is much too imprecise, more or less a "gamble around a little and may be you will observe something ...").

A document simply looking wrong is not useful. 

Wee need an intact document and a step by step instruction containing every key press and every mouse click how to reproduce the problem (making disappear pictures).

Did that problem appear with 3.6.0 or did you observe it already more early?

Hello Joseph Alexander, *,
would you be so kind to answer Rainer's questions from comment #1, please? It would be really useful to give us a step-by-step description ... ;)

If I open your attached document with LO Version:
Build ID: 1b3956717a60d6ac35b133d7b0a0f5eb55e9155 under Debian Testing AMD64, I can see the pictures up to page 5. Then there are only empty frames (I may be wrong, but if I right-click on them, I get a different context menu than clicking on the pictures before), so am not sure, if there was something inside before or if they are only placeholders for pictures to come ... :( If there where pictures before, it would be nice, you would describe us, how you have had inserted them, or what did you differently than before.

Hello Joseph Alexander, *,
still waiting for answers, so I removed the keyword "Needinfo" and switched to status "NEEDINFO" ... ;)
Sorry for the inconvenience

I reported bug 65341 which is marked as a duplicate of this.
I have tried to get this to happen on 4.1 RC1 and I cannot cause
the problem any more.
