I have pictures in my vault that I embed in my files, but I do not sync them to save space on my non-desktop devices Of course that means that I cannot see the pictures on my other devices.
However, I do have copies of those pictures on my server, with the same name.
Currently I embed the local file and next to it I also include a link to the the server’s version as an external link.

I could avoid having to insert the link to the picture as well as the embedded picture if sync had an option that said: “link to use to access pictures when local not found: _______”
where I would type:
Obsidian would then automatically replace embedded pictures with the server’s pictures when the local picture wasn’t found, and they could be viewed on all devices.
A few reasons
Some of us on desktops still like to organize related files together in the same folder.

Some of us still have unreliable internet service, and/or very slow service, too spotty to rely on all the time
