OOTB Magento provides this feature so you don't need to do anything for this. For this, You can just pass your Image URL (base_image, small_image, thumbnail_image, or additional_images)

  • i getting below error while entering external url : Imported resource (image) could not be downloaded from external resource due to timeout or access permissions in row(s): 1 – Camit1dk Mar 5 '18 at 7:54
  • please check the image is accessible or not or try to assign first sample image like google logo google.co.in/images/branding/googlelogo/1x/… – Keyur Shah Mar 5 '18 at 7:57
