How to add an image from a url in wordpress

If you’re using Pixabay or Unsplash for your stock images, adding them into your post or page doesn’t require you to download the image and then upload it to WordPress. Just load it from the URL! You should consider installing the Instant Images plugin though. It’s Unsplash’s entire library right in your WordPress dashboard.

Although it’s convenient, this method does have it’s downsides. If the image is deleted from the original website it’ll show a broken image on your website. So use with caution!

Disclaimer! Please don’t rip any old image from the internet. It’s OK if they’re from royalty-free stock sites like Unsplash and Pixabay, but definitely copyright infringement if you’re stealing other people’s stock images. Don’t do anything illegal!
