    Is there any way we could use remote images as features photos? I can embed them in the post, but they won’t show as the post image on the main page, then. We are filling up our media folders with new images at an uncomfortable rate.

    On other platforms I have used remote images to display instead, to save disk space. I realize the ratio might be off, but I’m searching for an alternative to filling up our server with images we only use once. Thanks.

    By default, WordPress does not allow you to set the featured image from an external url. For this you should use a plugin like Featured Image From URL or any other. I have never used a plugin of this type and I do not know exactly how it works, it is possible that the proportions of the images are lost and do not appear correctly in the widgets.




    thank you. I will test in my dev environment.
