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.
(Example of hot linked image)
(Example of attachment)
(Example of Maximum attachment image dimensions selection)
(Example of Options page)
- Hot linked images are immediately converted to attachments after message is saved.
- Images automatically resized.
- Allows inserting full-size or thumbnail attachments.
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?
Q: Does Convert image add-on support $config['http']['proxy'] to hide my IP address?
