@cammykool This image error is related to the php code. Apache off load php (the language the web ui is written in) to php-fpm (dedicated php execution engine). The error you see is apache saying that php-fpm did not answer it was done with the task in time so apache timed out.
There may be some clues to what is at fault in /var/log/php-fpm/error.log tail that and see if it tells you what its not liking. If you set the permissions of 777 on /images nothing should stop it from moving files.
i had my coworker crack away at it. He got them all to delete and we are in good shape! Everything seems to be working and happy!
