    Hello,

    First off, thank you for this plugin, it’s very useful.

    I’m having a little issue with uploading an image from an external URL that redirects to another URL. For example, I have a shortened URL like http://shorturl.com/myimage.jpg and and it redirects to http://longerurllink.com/whatever/gallery/myimage.jpg. But if I try and use http://shorturl.com/myimage.jpg in your External Media uploader, it gives me a ‘blank’ image because the External Media uploader doesn’t actually go to the redirect.

    Is there a way around this? Perhaps a check made to see if it’s actually uploading an image or something?

    Thank you.

    Thank you! I will take a look, probably the function I am using is not respecting redirects.
