You won't lose your pics. Your pics will just have your new name.

I was told before by admin that I could change my name if I really wanted to but they advised against it because my exposure would suffer and i would have to start building my name up again under the new name.(blogs, posts, etc)... so I took their advice and kept the silly Mudplucker name :)

At least your nick is more unique than mine, I would love to change, but like what Mudplucker has said, few websites which had my images already stated my nick as the copyright and it's too late, but then again, on the brighter note my nick is my name, I can't say I hate my name LOL.
