Depending on what the source of the image is, one thing to be wary of
is ever increasing amounts of metadata being included with them.  Some
programs are notorious for adding text for every single edit ever made
(insert pointed look at the entire Adobe suite here).  Sometimes that
metadata can do strange things.

It might be worth grabbing EXIFTool and stripping the entire lot out.

This command will display all the metadata:

exiftool -all filename.png

And this command will clear as much as can be stripped from it as

exiftool -all= filename.png
