This will solve your problem
change the "Store uploads in this folder" setting (in Settings->Miscellaneous) from "/wp-content/uploads" to "<strong>wp-content/uploads</strong>".
note :remove the slash from the begining
you don't need to change permission settings,
if nothing works read this

Chmod your <strong>upload</strong> folder to 755
# Open up your FTP program and connect to your website.
# Find the file or folder that you need to CHMOD(wp-content/uploads), and right click it (apple-click if you have a Mac)
# Look for an option called "Get Info" or "More Info" or "CHMOD". The wording will vary by programs. You may have to try a couple different options if you aren't sure.
# If you are in the right area, a window with permissions will come up. This usually consists of several check boxes, 3 labeled "Read", 3 labeled "Write" and 3 labeled "Execute". From here you can check and uncheck the boxes for the User, Group and World, thus changing the CHMOD. Often for your convince there is a text input box were you can just type in the CHMOD "755", and the correct boxes will check.
# Search for tick "apply for all subfolders".
If nothing will help you try to chmod all subfolders in uploads folder or create folder "2010/08" manualy.
You check in order these:
1) directory /uploads exists?
2) directory /uploads is 777 permission from ftp?
3) directory /uploads/2010 exists?
4) directory /uploads/2010 is 777 permission from ftp?
6) directory /uploads/2010/08 exists?
6) directory /uploads/2010/08 is 777 permission from ftp?

Although this is not a fix, I highly recommend upload via FTP.
