Have you tried downloading the image? Or at least an HTTP connection?

AFAIK, HTTP doesn't provide an option to detect the size of a file
without downloading (might be wrong, never messed around with HTTP
headers). (S)FTP might, though, but that requires an open FTP connection.

In any case, you'll need an open network connection to the file.
