I’ve enabled the
Download remote images to local option in the admin settings (I’m assuming this isn’t a per user option).
Then I created a test post:

The results showed that all the 3 images still pointed to the remote server (atleast the code didnt’ change to show it was pointing locally or to amazon). Note that I’ve enabled the option to upload content to Amazon S3 (if that matters).
I’ve been through some posts which talk about ways to prevent it from downloading but in this case the 3 most common ways of posting an image doesn’t seem to download it.
So under what conditions does downloading remote images work and what’s the best way to configure it?
