Every time, we need to add a image from another site to our WordPress website, it is more time consuming and monotonous. Either we save the image file locally and upload back to WordPress site or we directly embed it to the site.

Embedding image directly, if the source file is removed, it leaves a broken image in our site. To avoid having broken image, we prefer to have import the image to our media gallery and save it in our server.

Adding images to site, you have to spend precious time downloading the image first and then importing it to the site.
