In a script code is there a way to ask photoshop to download a photo from the internet and open it?


Example; I have an image on the internet "https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/ec/Sunset_in_Manaus.jpg"

I would like it to open in Photoshop via script. Would it be possible?

* Photoshop would download the photo to the pc and then open it.

When I use that script with the url you posted the script just gets a header.  Yet my browser has no trouble with the url.  The script just gets so the script heeds to be updated to use the correct protocol for HTTPS.
