The option for importing a picture for your hard drive doesn't work. You have to upload it first to an image hosting service (such as imgur) and then use the option "Import a photo from URL".

Does your URL ends with ".jpg", ".gif" or whatever format the image is? If not, then it's a link to the webpage hosting the picture, not the link to the picture itself.
You can get the direct link in several ways, such as:

-Right click and select "Copy image link" or similar (I tried on Firefox, don't know about other browsers)
-Right click to open the image in a new tab and copy the URL from the new tab.
-In Imgur, you can click on the image and get the share options, which include several forms of the link. The one I use is the BBCode for using in forums; I just make sure to delete the IMG tags at the beginning and end.

Also, if the link has more text after the ".jpg" or whatever (usually a question mark followed by some values), try deleting that additional text; those are visualization parameters and are not needed for importing.
