I want to store jpg files on my Google Drive account and then, when I need one as a Featured Image, upload it from my Google Drive account into my WordPress Media Library.
That doesn't sound crazy, does it? But all the WP-G'Drive plug-ins I see are about backing up or about embedding documents in a post. I just want to move a jpg file from one "drive" in the cloud (Google Drive) to another "drive" (or database) in the cloud (WordPress).
Is there a way to do this?
(Pasting the https URL of the jpg file on Google Drive into the "From URL" tab of the Set Featured Image pop-up dialog in WordPress doesn't work -- WordPress puts a big red X next to the URL right away. I can't find any documentation on exactly why, or how to work around it.)
