No permission to download
Note
Compatible XF 2.x versions: 2.0, 2.1, 2.2
Description:

Converts hot linked images to attachments.

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.

This add-on runs automatically every time a new post is created or a post is edited.

(Example of hot linked image)

(Example of attachment)

(Example of Maximum attachment image dimensions selection)

Features:
  • Hot linked images are immediately converted to attachments after message is saved.
  • Images greater than maximum width and height settings in Admin Control Panel will be resized.
  • Allows inserting full-size or thumbnail attachments.
Maximum attachment image dimensions selection:

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 2500 x 2500.

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?
A: No.

Q: Does Convert image add-on support $config['http']['proxy'] to hide my IP address?
A: Yes.

Addon is working well, but I think you should add user group permission.
Awesome! Permanently convert images to links directly to those on the hard drive. No more relying on the built in proxy system.
This is excellent, works well for bbcode images.
