  • Hi @alexgold05

    Because ACF uses the native WP media library for it’s data, the uploaded image will need to be added to the media library so that it has an ID in the database.

    If you wish to use a url for the image and store it in a custom folder, just use a text field to hold the url instead of an image field. This will be the easiest solution.
