Easily Upload Images From URL to WordPress Blog With Grab & Save WordPress Plugin
Have you been annoyed with downloading Images from the Web and later Uploading to your WordPress Blog? I feel it just wastes a few minutes of your time. Adding images from a URL of any other site is not advisable as it will land you up in a 404 error when the image is removed. You can not use an image from some other site as a featured Image in WordPress. Hence you need to download the image to your PC and upload it to your Gallery. As it is time consuming and inconvenient, Grab & Save WordPress Plugin simplifies it for you.
How to Import External Images in WordPress
I have a directory of images stored on a website and “considered” as a CDN. I need these images to be displayed on an online standalone WP website.
**Without importing them in the WP Media library.**
Let’s say one image or more by post. I’ll add an extra field to tell the post the path of its image(s). Custom height and width fields as well.
When you want to save a post, this plugin search for image urls which exists in post and automatically upload and import external images to the WordPress upload directory and add images to the media library and then replace new image urls with old urls.
