THESE ARE THE DROIDS YOU'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR! :)

SO, for anyone hating the WP importer plugin because it just doesn't work at all for more nuanced applications like exporting selected posts/categories, you'll first need to install and run "Export Plus": https://wordpress.org/plugins/export-plus/

Import your file to your new WP site, then run this gem "Import External Images" and you're done!

I hope both plugin Auths keep these vital plugs updated!

Works perfect

Converting a website from Adobe Business Catalyst to WordPress was a breeze with this plugin. Use the WordPress RSS importer to get the posts in, then this plugin to import the images into WordPress... Amazing!!

Highly recommended!

Really great plugin. There are a few workarounds though, for example on Amazon images that are https:// should be changed in the database to http:// before they can be imported. Other than that this is awesome - helped me stacks with a recent migration. Eternally greatful.

Did the job quickly and easily

Great idea

Useful solution to a very specific problem.

Works Great, Needs an updated How-To
By , for WP 4.3.1

Author needs to add something like "Site wide importing can be done from the Media -> Import Images screen with modifiers" to the FAQ or how-to.

Otherwise, this worked out fantastically. You can also go through each page and post individually and import them there or just use the above to import eveerything.
