I want to download image from a particular http path using httpRequest and load that image as texture on a Sprite Node.

Thanks in advance.

I’m not sure if you can do that. I managed to download the image but it only appears on the project files after restarting the game. Try yourself with the code below:

func download_texture(url : String, file_name : String):
	var http =

func _ready():
	download_texture("", "my_new_texture.png")

Thanks for your answer, but the answer below is perfect.

This is demonstrated in Unpackaged images question, just replace the TextureRect node with a Sprite.

Thank You it worked. i have two questions, if we want jpg images to download, is there any function for that? and second is how to show a loading image that it is downloading.
