You can use images hosted on another site without downloading them to your computer and uploading them into WordPress. Instead of selecting files to upload, click the From URL tab. You'll be asked for the source URL in addition to all the usual image fields (Figure 4-32). However, WordPress won't generate other sizes; you have to use the image as-is.
Keep in mind that images inserted this way are not copied to your server. If the owner of the original file moves or deletes it, it will no longer appear in your post.
