HTTPS Site > HTTP images linked by users?

What is the best way to handle this problem?

Our forums are HTTPS, but the user has linked to images on another site at HTTP.

As you can see in the top of the page, this breaks our SSL status, and will affect our Google status for this page.

Only thing I can think of is to not allow linking to images on other sites. But users may link to PDF's and all kinds of other things that wont necessarily be HTTPS.

Doesn't the forum software know to handle these in some fashion automatically? Google is rewarding sites for being HTTPS so this is going to be a common thing.
