HTTPS not displaying images

I recently loaded an ssl cert on my server.  When I load my pages in Mozilla using HTTP everything loads fine, but when I load through HTTPS the pages load fine, but the images all return 404 errors.  I've tried relative linking and absolute linking of the images through http://www.mywebsitename.com/; https://www.mywebsitename.com; and www.mywebsitename.com, but no luck.
Note:  Loading the page in Internet Explorer brings up a dialog stating that the page contains mixed content and asks if I want to display the non-secure items.  If yes is selected the images still don't show up.

Make sure you are using relative paths for your images.

e.g.
If you have an image
<img src="http://www.mywebsitename.com/images/header.jpg" width="100" height="100" />

you should change that to
<img src="images/header.jpg" width="100" height="100" />

If you use an absolute path, even though you are loading the page from https that image is requested from http.

All of my image paths are relative from before I set up the https, so it's something else.  Although I double checked that, and even looked for anything like a <base href=url /> tag.  Any other ideas?

Solved it.  I had hotlink protection enabled for the server I was serving the image from.  I disabled it and it started serving my images to the https server from the http server.
