Is there a way to upload images in a workflow without manually using the picture uploader?

I have a number of images stored in a google drive. I have URLs for each in a csv.
I want to save each image to the database. Is there a way to do this without manually downloading each one and then uploading it with the picture uploader. My concern is mistakes in the manual process - eg attaching the wrong image to a record - and efficiency.

An image element will display an image in various ways, one of which is through a dynamic value, which can actually just be a link to the image. Test it out by adding the link from your CSV file and see if it renders properly or not. If it does you can simply just reference the URL as uploaded via CSV.
