[resolved] How to store the shot local (3 posts)

    This is a superb plugin.
    Is it possible to get the image stored in the upload folder?

    Three examples why

    We are using this in our project workspace installs of wp and a lot of mail for new posts - links - with current shot in the post. We would like to include tha image in the notification system/ emails.

    Second, The first time a page is viewed, no shot is generated, just the black spinning box. But the second time, its ok. So a preloaded background image - locally stored - would be nice, captured from local folder...

    Third, sometimes the shot is a "example" of something and we don wanna have a refresh / actual shot from any updated source page.

    Also for the future, a choice of white light box instead of the black stuff would be nice

    Thanks for this plug and your work!

    This could be done using the media_sideload_image() function, possibly attached to the save_post hook.

    Kevin, I am trying to save the image to the local, did a lot of stuff, including the media_side_image() function, may be I am doing something wrong or the function is not meant to do such stuff.

    Can you please help me with this? I really need this.

    just suggest some links which could explain me how this can be done, if possible.

    Thanks in advance.
