Not sure about the batch importer, but...

... the post-by-post feature is perfect for what I needed to do, which is fix a handful of recent posts that I carried over from wordpress.com. For some reason, the Process all posts is listing all posts and their images, but if I go check the source of those posts the images are local. No idea what's going on there, and too scared to run it after all the hoops I jumped through to get this site moved over. :)

But if you go to a single post, you'll see a box showing all the external images that can be imported. Check the box and hit update and you're golden.

It work great except for one thing it did not support "https" links so I change the pattern to include both http and https. :)

if ( $uri != '' && preg_match( '/^https?:\/\//' , $uri ) ) {

Worked Perfectly
By , for WP 3.8.1

This plugin churned away for over 10 minutes, importing 648 images to the media library. It worked perfectly.

If you need to import images from Blogger, use this. :)

Thanks for a great plugin!

I tried tons of plugins. But this is the only one that works good for me.

Works well but has errors associated with case sensitivity
By , for WP 3.5.1

This is a terrific replacement for the Add Linked Images To Gallery plugin which is no longer supported.

But the current version of this plugin (v1.1) has a number of issues in the code where tests should be case insensitive but are not. This issue has the effect of sometimes preventing images from being added.

The fixes are very simple and I'm sure the author will update the plugin.

Works good and does what it says.

Works really well. The only thing that isn't optimal is having to refresh the bulk transport page to check the status.
