Adding external images to posts or custom post types
External Images work everywhere that allows featured images and/or galleries. Note that not all post types have ‘gallery support’ enabled, so in those cases the gallery box will not appear.

In compatible post types that support galleries, you’ll find an additional box. You can enter the image URLs into this box, hit ‘Preview Image’ and that extra image will be added to your gallery.
