Hey guys,

Basically I'm currently building a site for a client who runs a bookstore. As part of the site they will be list a heap of books and obviously want to include the covers for these books. They have a website that they use to get information on all the books available to them, and will be sourcing their images from there.

Would it be easy to set it up that instead of having to download the images and upload them to silverstripe, that they could simply specify the url to the image and silverstripe would pull it across for them?

Cheers in advance!
