    Hi, how does this work, will it download external images into the gallery?

    1. Does this scan images only when the post is first posted? and then edited?
    2. Will it download external images, generate thumbnails ?
    3. How can i pop up the original image in lightbox?
    4. can i integrate into Elementor page builder?

    I made a mistake, I thought you asked me about my other plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/download-external-images-in-posts/

    So the reply is for that plugin, not for this. But you can combine them together so they will work in tandem. That plugin with the link I proved above: will download external images, and this plugin will resize the images.

    Why don’t you give a try and see how it works?
    It will not add new images into the gallery form of the WP admin page, it will only download all external images when the post/page displays. All the images will be saved into wp-content\uploads folder of your site and in the posts, all external URLs of all images will get replaced after it will get downloaded. So first time when the page loads with external images it will take a while, and after that the page will load very fast. The plugin does not edit your posts.
    Will not generate thumbnails. But the idea is good, maybe I will implement this later.

    So with them both installed can i get my external images downloaded and have the thumbnails generated and replaced in the posts?? YES?

    This plugin does NOT generate thumbnails. Why not add it manually? I think you need to create a custom plugin or find another one that will fit your needs.

    Ok, thanks for the background info….

    where in the two plugins can i see where the image links are modified and displayed, thanks….

    This way i can change it for a popup script

    thanks
