Before I upload my website to server, I created post with images which are uploaded to media, their url are, for example: http://localhost:40952/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/study_in-En.gif

After I uploaded website to server, the link to the images in the post is not updated, therefore, the images are disappeared in post.

Is there anyway I can update the images link automatically? It is very painful to go and fix every link url. Thanks.

before copy/pasting the database from your local machine to the production server, you should do a Find & Replace on the domain name.

this way you replace localhost:40952 with the correct domain on every url in the database.

or read the part 'Moving WordPress to a New Server' on the codex.
