We actually prefer images to be uploaded directly to PokEdit. If you don't use that method there are a couple bad things that can happen.
First thing: The image can be taken down on the other website. That means there will be a big blank box on PokEdit and nobody will be able to see it. Makes it hard to clean up stuff too.
Second: Some sites don't allow hot linking. It uses other sites bandwidth to host images on our site.
Third thing: Some sites might BLOCK hot linking. So here is what happens. You saw the picture in your browser just fine on some other site. So now that picture is cached in your browser. If you paste the url on PokEdit then you'll be able to see the picture just fine because it's getting the image data from your cache. However, the url is really blocked and anybody who hasn't view that particular image before will just see emptiness.
