Joomla Virtuemart - The image URLs submitted seem to be blocked by robots.txt

I got this mesage in Google Base

Roboted images (113 items)
The image URLs submitted seem to be blocked by robots.txt. Google will not be able to display these images together with the products. Please change your robots.txt file to allow Google to download the image.

I am working on a Virtuemart Joomla installation and I think it could either be from

Disallow: /components/
Disallow: /images/

To check this I've search for

' is Disallow: /components/ blocking image for google '

' joomla virtuemart image blocked from google merchant '

and found the answer in this forum
Red Mystic Forum

that its the  Disallow: /components/ 

however I am going to remove the Disallow: /images/ as well, as I would like this site to be findable in Google images .  In fact I will check that all my Joomla sites are searchable in Google Images.
