Pinterest link messages must include an image

Pinterest Link Messages must include an image. You used Best Image for this message’s photo. Best Image is drawn from the permalink area at the top of the queue, but we couldn’t find an image selected for the permalink. Either select a different image or make sure the the permalink has an image. Some URLs may not have scrapeable images at all.

Why did I receive this error?

What should I do to resolve this error?

To resolve this issue, you will need to manually upload an image to your link-type message to have it publish successfully.

How do I prevent this error from happening in the future?

The best way to make sure that your message is published to Pinterest is to manually upload an image to your message.
