Hi,
I'm trying to import a photo into palettes using a link to a photo I have on Pinterest. I've not had problems with this in the past. Below is the message I've been getting:
We're sorry but there was an error. Please contact us with the following message enclosed:

Not a valid Image.


My computer's OS is Vista and I am currently using Firefox 12.0.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Can you let me know what the URL is you're trying to import?

So, for my photos, is it better to pull from Flickr than Pinterest? Will I always have this problem with Pinterest? I didn't used to...

You can pull from pinterest, you just need to import using the actual URL of the image and not the link to the page. ie the link needs to end in .jpg

OK... I got it. The fog clears.
Thanks for all your help.

You can see the patterns when you click on the full page view. All my patterns are blank, too.

Yesterday when I was on the site, my past patterns I made were visible, but now I can't see them anymore, except for the new one I just made today.

I'm on Windows 10 and Chrome Canary.

When you go to try to download the pattern, you get redirected to a white screen.

Is there any way to fix this? Thanks
