There are two common reasons why I picture is not accepted.

First, on picture services like Flicker or Photobucket, the urls do not always directly link to the picture, but rather to a web page displaying the picture. The software needs a URL directly to the picture.

Second, the picture may be too big. As the note says: "The maximum size of your custom image is 100 by 100 pixels or 31.3 KB (whichever is smaller)"
