Description:

Converts hot linked images to attachments.

The Convert image add-on will convert hot linked images in messages to attachments. Hot linked images are those images that have been inserted using the Image icon in the editor toolbar.

This add-on runs automatically every time a new post is created or a post is edited.

Features:
  • Hot linked images are immediately converted to attachments after message is saved.
  • Images automatically resized.
  • Allows inserting full-size or thumbnail attachments.
Maximum attachment image dimensions selection:

Although the screenshot above says you can use 0 or blank, this add-on requires you to use a positive value for the Maximum attachment image dimensions settings. I suggest using 1600 x 1600.

Admin control panel -> Setup -> Options -> Attachments -> Maximum attachment image dimensions

Question and Answers:

Q: Are attachments reused, meaning if the same attachment is located in several posts does each one use up disk space?
A: Each attachment is saved separately, however this is not a problem these days as disk space is so inexpensive.

Q: Does this add-on convert hot linked images in other areas besides posts?
A: No.

Q: Does Convert image add-on support $config['http']['proxy'] to hide my IP address?
A: Yes.
