Hey Guys!
I am trying to find a way of loading a extern image into Godot.
I found multiple discussions about more or less the same topic, but the examples I find are only for audio files and after a few hours of googeling, experimenting and reading the docs up an down, I just can’t get them to work with image files.

I know that there is no easy built-in function or anything like that in Godot right know, but for example in this thread someone is saying, importing a .png file is “simple enough”:

I hope somebody can help me, thank you in advance!

func _ready():
	var image =
	image.load("image path")
	var t =
	$Sprite.texture = t

Thank you but thats not what I meant.
Your code only works if Godot imported the Image already,.
I am searching for a solution that can import a Image, from a external source.

like a website or from another directory on the file manager like C://user:/Desktop/image.png

From another directory on the Drive, loading already imported Images works Just fine.

funny enough its exactly the same as the answer but only difference is using the filedialog node as a path project file here
