How can I use the features of the File Uploading library but instead pass an Image via a URL - El Forum - 08-06-2010

Uploading images via file upload is fine using the File Uploading class, however I am trying to use the same class to upload images from external links. I have tried adding the field name to the method, do_upload($fieldname) but no luck. Is there any other library or technique other than manually writing the same code to do the job.
