Google App Engine and Windows 7 Snipping Tool Incompatability

I saw an issue in the last two days with app engine that took me awhile to fix. I was saving pictures using the 'Snipping Tool' in Windows 7 as .png files and then uploading them to my Google app engine site. The pictures were subsequently not available on the site. I was never able to make the pictures available. However, after pasting pictures into Microsoft Pain on Windows 7 and then saving them as .png files and uploading to my Google app engine site, they became available online. I don't know what causes the issue, but it seems easy enough to avoid once it's known.

Have fun!
