          Sometimes PNG files created in other programs can be a problem.  I experience that same problem with scren shots save as PNG files in a Firefox extension called Screengrab! The workaround for me has been to open the problem file in Mac Preview and save it from there as a PNG file. You might be able to do something similar with Windows Paint.
