Is there any way to override or figure out why I get 'Points improperly placed'?

Is there any way to override or figure out why I get 'Points improperly placed'? My avatar is purposely distorted slightly wider than 'normal' human proportion due to the 3-D nature of the web page that it is placed on. It can tale a long time moving with the points until I get sitepal to accept the placement. For example, a dog face would have an odd nose to mouth placement as compared to a human, and it gets rejected.
points improperly placed
Hi Ferd -
The "photoface" process of converting the photo to a 3D model was implemented to generate a human face.
If you are trying to make this work for something with "unusual" proportions (i.e. a dog's face) - it will likely fail.

Can you provide more information about what you are trying to accomplish?
I'd be interested to see the photo you are trying to use.

I was able to stretch the face 150% vertically which made it finally 'take'. The web page is wrapped around a sculpted prim to make a 3-D object.

It would be nice if I had some idea of the constraints that are violated. An more descriptive error message such as 'face too short' would have been nice. I have to really torture the image at times to make it 3-D..

The picture as a sitepal object is at http://secondlife.mitsi.com/avatar/ In this case, it was the Socrates Bust at the bottom right that caused troubles

And here is how it works in 3-D: a very shot video of it in the world of Second Life.
