I have some images in the s3 bucket. I want to add those images to the strapi project. I have a user table containing the name, age, and image. and when I create a new user I want to link an image from the s3 bucket to the strapi project. Without re-uploading again to strapi. I am using graplQl and nextJs. how can I do that?. I wsaw one plugin that is AWS S3 | Strapi Market . But how can i link existing s3 images when creating new user?

Not sure it is possible as strapi needs to not just gather the name of the image (and its sized variants) but all of its metadata too which is stored in the strapi database.

Strapi will also need to created four sized images of each imageā€¦ is there a way to put them in another bucket or create a new bucket and write a script to load each of the pictures into strapi?

i think you can use this plugin @strapi/provider-upload-aws-s3
