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?

This is one link that was a photo I found on another site:
http://media-cache4.pinterest.com/upload/143200463121963913_VnUhItu6_b.jpg

This link is a photo of mine that I uploaded:
http://pinterest.com/pin/143200463121804687/

I don't know if that makes a difference or not, but they are the two that I tried.

Thanks for your help.

The first image is too small I think.

And the second link would need to be to the actual photo in order to work:

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.

How hard is it to actually READ the profile and comments of the person you follow or comment to, and realize they are a spammer? It's not like spammers are subtle about it.

I know that I have listed at least one of these last three before, but they are all still here, with over a thousand patterns and palettes between them, all trying to sell human hair:

Just for the record:

The many incarnations of Caroline
Licorice104 - "Caroline", actively ripped off other people's art. Still on ColorBuffs as Caroline.
Wintermoods - "Carly", harrassed a new member until they left.
SkimmerSky - "Ennio", on this account, she actively catfished a female member into falling in love with this male persona. Once decided to "steal" my profile picture and use it to make a palette, then claimed that it was just a coincidence.
Jbean "Jim" catfished the same female member. Tended to go batshit for no reason.
LadyMoore
Pink Ruby
(All of the above accounts, minus Wintermoods, were deleted at the same time when "SkimmerSky" was called out as Caroline here.)
OrgasmicArt - "Charlie", deleted a few days ago when confronted about the fact that they were using the profile pic from my old account and using a name similar to OrigamiMei, but, again, it was 'just a coincidence."
