I was editing a post with a primary intent to include pictures in the post that had been linked to by a low rep user. (The postThe post appears to have been deleted). Normally this process is very easy - copy the URL, and paste it in the "From the Web" tab of the image uploader. However, it rejected this Dropbox image with the error message:

"Failed to upload image; the format is not supported"

I downloaded the pictures, which worked fine, but wasn't near as convenient.
