Does anyone know how to make the photographs appear in The Guardian's RSS feeds in Google Reader?

This has been a mild irritation for a while. For some reason, even though there are two sizes of graphic in the actual feed -- a preview and full image -- they're replaced when the feed appears in Reader with a blank space.

Reader also dumps graphics from other feeds -- it seems to be to do with how the feed is configured. I've emailed user help at The Guardian and Google about this but never had a response.

I know an alternative would be to move to a different reader but I've been using Google Reader for ages and even with the refit it suits most purposes.

If you've got basic programming skills, you could use something like Yahoo Pipes to slightly reconfigure the feed in a way that Google Reader likes.

Sleepcrime: I've tried that and can't seem to work it out, thanks. Anyone else?

It's not quite what you're after, but Phil Gyford, of Pepys' diary fame, has a very user-friendly Guardian/Observer site that takes its material from the Guardian Open Platform. (If the redistribution rights to a story are unavailable, he always has a link to the original.)
