This plugin turns images that are hosted elsewhere into images that are now in your Media Library, and the code on your page is automatically updated.
Do you have images in your WordPress that are hosted on other sites, such as Flickr? And do you want a magical way to have all those images (past and future) automatically copied into your Media Library? And would you like the code of your site to be automatically updated to point to the new image in your Media Library rather than the external link to Flickr or other site?
Maybe you're a photoblogger and you add your photos to Flickr, and then embed them into a new post in your WordPress site. Or maybe you're moving an old static HTML website to WordPress and you don't want to have to download and upload every single image and modify the image code in WordPress to reflect the changes.
(Skip over this section if you aren't a techo-wiz)
Create local copies of external images in the src attribute of img tags. This plugin extracts a list of IMG tags in the post, and saves copies of those images locally as gallery attachments on the post.
This plugin waves a magic wand and turns images that are hosted elsewhere (like in your Flickr account or on another website) into images that are now in your Media Library. The code on your page is automatically updated so that your site now uses the version of the images that are in your Media Library instead. It saves them as 'gallery attachments' to the pages/posts they are on, so you can create a WordPress Gallery with the images now.
This plugin is based on the work done in the "Add Linked Images to Gallery" plugin by http://www.bbqiguana.com/
