This is a bug in the DELTA Editor: the 'Select Image to Add' dialog 
won't accept URLs longer than 39 characters.

You can work around the bug by editing the 'Taxon images' or 'Character 
images' file via 'View > Action Sets'.

Alternatively, make a local copy of the image file. An advantage of this 
approach is that people will be able to use the products from a CD 
without needing access to the Internet.
