Can Magento Import and display external Product images?

I use a distributor that has over 22,000 products, they send me a updated product file every day.

The import/export feature works great and I can import every product, but I can’t get the images to display.
My distributor sends me URL’s to the images hosted on their servers.

So my question: is there a workaround, simple solution or reason for this issue? Or am I just doing something wrong?

Product Gallery Importer lets you import products with multiple product images from a CSV file.

The CSV file containing all the products you wish to import should have a field name “gallery”. The field “gallery” should contain all the images you want to show up in the product gallery. Each image should be delimited by a semicolon: ‘;’

This extension works great.

Hi

“So my question: is there a workaround, simple solution or reason for this issue? Or am I just doing something wrong?”

There are lots of solutions that are available web-wide.  Here one of the good examples: http://sourceforge.net/projects/magmi/
