[wp-hackers] wp_get_image_editor

Greetings all,

I had noticed something odd in the documentation for wp_get_image_editor -
while it says "This function is the main function that you use when you
want to edit an image by url", the example doesn't give a url as the
parameter. Why is a url expected instead of a local file path?

It seems odd that it expects url and fetches them, as local file is more
efficient and less likely to be blocked. Any specific reason it is built
this way?

Best regards,
