I have set the web server to the owner and also just for trial purposes
set the folder to 777 neither makes any difference.

Safe mode is off should this be an issue?
I wouldn't think so. Whether safe_mode is on or off, you'll still need
the proper permissions to write to the drive. So, if the owner of the
images directory is you, then 755 won't be good enough, since "you" are
not the one doing the writing, the web server is. By making the web
server the owner of the directory, 755 will be enough. Or, of course,
you could make the permissions 777 but I wouldn't think that's
recommended. So, I'll ask my question again. Who is the owner of the
images directory? If it isn't the web server, make it so and let me know
if that helps.
