 Hi @svenl77

 I've just checked your plugin, and the reason is you are sending an url
 when we expect an absolute path. The docblock is mentioning it:
 `@type string $image     The absolute path to the image`

 I think it's justified/safer to check if the file exists before trying to
 copy it in another place.

 I've tried to find a WordPress function to get the attachment path, and it
 seems to only exist for thumbnails > `wp_get_attachment_thumb_file()`.
 Maybe you can get some inspiration out of this function and get the
 absolute path to the 'post-thumbnail' size before using the 'copy'

 It's weird it's working with an url though... I need to understand why as
 PHP's copy function requires a path.
