Can you send me one of the images that doesn't work? Also, computer specs would be good.
I am getting a similar problem trying to load any kind of image file (including those located in the "sample images" directory):
File->Load image 1 ... select a file
Results in the dialogs:
Error! Error loading file: YellowFlowers.png
Error! Error processing image
but no "abort" message as described by pwyon.
PixelBender 1.0.350192, build 35 running on Windows XP SP3, nVidia nForce2 chipset, AMD Barton 2800+, nVidia GeForce 6200
It used to work, but I can't remember if it was with a previous version or the current version.
I get this as well.
1.5.1 build 02:
1) Open up Pixel Bender Toolkit
2) Goto File > Load Image 1
3) In the browser window select one of the demo images (or any other image), click ok
4) ERROR!, Error Loading File: mandelbrot.png
Click ok, try again, same thing.

I believe the GPU is the issue.
I noticed my card was not supported. If i force the toolkit to render CPU it lets me load an image.
