Remember that the path should start relative to the master document.  
If we have the following arrangement:

Dissertation Materials/
Dissertation Materials/pictures/
Dissertation Materials/pictures/BeliefReX.pdf
Chapter 1/
Chapter 1/Chapter 1.tex

Where thesis.tex includes all your chapters, and Chapter 1.tex has  
the snippet given above, then it should start without the ../

Another possibility is the configuration (how paranoid is it. If you  
execute this in the terminal:

kpsewhich -var-value=openin_any -progname=pdflatex

you should get an 'a', for any, which allows absolute paths, and  
should allow the stuff above. If you get a 'p', then you have the  
root cause of your problem. Change in whatever is returned by  
kpsewhich texmf.cnf. Add line: openin_any = a
