the fact ist pmwiki attaches by default from uploads/Groupname.
You can attach from another group/place.
As I remember it's possible to configure pmwiki so it uploads always  
from upload (or whatever).

I also had an issue, when using
when pictures were not in the same group as the category.
There may also be problems, when us use variables, which resolve differently,
as in this case.

Example of EasyGallery
(doesn't work when called from category)

(:title Haley:)
(:description %thumb%[[{$FullName}|Attach:HaleyDog.jpg"{$Title}"]]%%:)
Categories: Animals Dogs
(:if false:)
Thumbnail: %thumb%Attach:HaleyDog.jpg%%
Thumbnailink: %thumb%[[{$FullName}|Attach:HaleyDog.jpg"{$Title}"]]%%
=>fullname has other value in other group, when called from category context.
