Here are the Docs and several example objects:

Here is an example inflating from a greyscale image:

You will see Curvy works best with greyscale heightmaps, and two colour black/white images. You can use any image - but it will still interpret that as a height or two colour.

Feel free to post here or pm your picture to me and I will see if it will work with the Image Inflate tool.

Also note the image resolution is used to set the number of triangles in the mesh - so smallish images 100-200 pixels will work better than 4000 pixel wide photos.
