HTTPS as a ranking signal - used in WordPress blogs and unless bloggers will use external image all pages will be https.
Same will apply if user use hosted domain example: -  use images you uploaded to your blog's media folder.
Or if you need to use tracking image in the script from external source use/change to https:// or simply remove http part and leave link to external image without it like this - <img src="// or if you use custom fonts from URL it my look like this - <link href="// you just do not mention http or https if not sure.
In some caces if external site where your image come from not secure simply adding to the link https may not work.  But for most of the sites like it will.
Result may very but it worth to try since it work for hundreds of bolgs who use custom RSS feeds, external images from secure sites or external fonts styles.

Migrating from HTTP to HTTPS

If you migrate your site from HTTP to HTTPS, Google treats this as a site move with a URL change. This can temporarily affect some of your traffic numbers as described here:

You may experience a temporary fluctuation in site ranking during the move. With any significant change to a site, you may experience ranking fluctuations while Google recrawls and reindexes your site. As a general rule, a medium-sized website can take a few weeks for most pages to move in our index; larger sites can take longer. The speed at which Googlebot and our systems discover and process moved URLs largely depends on the number of URLs and your server speed. Submitting a sitemap can help make the discovery process quicker, and it's fine to move your site in sections.
Beware of common HTTPS/TLS pitfalls that can affect ranking. Review the Common pitfalls section on this page to learn the most common mistakes that we see when sites move from HTTP to HTTPS.
HTTPS sites receive a small ranking boost, but don't expect a visible change. Google uses HTTPS as a positive ranking signal. This signal is one amongst many others, and currently carries less weight than high-quality site content; you should not expect a major SEO advantage for moving to HTTPS in the short term. In the longer term, Google may increase the strength of the HTTPS boost.
Review our G+ post on HTTPS move FAQs. We published a G+ post containing some questions and answers to specific technical questions when moving to HTTPS. You can ask questions there, but please read the existing comments first, as your question may already be answered.
If you have problems, Google Webmaster Central is a great resource. There is plenty of good advice on Google Webmasters and specific cases answered in our user forums. If you can’t find an answer, you can ask a live question to one of our Webmaster Trends Analysts during our Webmaster Central office hours.

HTTPS as a ranking signal

Security is a top priority for Google. We invest a lot in making sure that our services use industry-leading security, like strong HTTPS encryption by default. That means that people using Search, Gmail and Google Drive, for example, automatically have a secure connection to Google.

if you have #SSL installed on your #server below code when added to an .htaccess file will automatically #redirect any #traffic destined for http: to #https:
add it to your #htaccess  
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [R,L]

But! to make sure it will not show you SSL error (pop-up or notification in address bar..) All you content need to come from Same server with relative (image/777.jpg) or absolute pass with https://....  if some resource coming from External source it need to be with https:// secure site! 

Simple changing in the code http to https will not solve the problem. 
Let me know if you need help with this.
