Is it possible to use links to product images in Magento 1.9?

Is it possible to use links to product images in Magento 1.9?

Hello Good morning!
Is it possible when sending bulk products into Magento, and entering a product image URL instead of the location where it would be in the installation?

 

Because I have 25,000 SKU's, and I can't download the images one by one, it would be unfeasible.
Is there any app that does something like that?

 

Grateful

Dead Mr. Anderson,

Magento 1.x does not support import of remote images from external URLs by default.

For import images should be downloaded and put to media/import folder and in your import file should be exact image names. However, there are lots of third-party extensions and plug-ins that handle this, one of the most popular ones Magmi (free), Store Manager for Magento (2-weeks free version + support to assist in case of questions).
