Is it possible to use an image from the web instead of one that is stored locally using the method to put .bitmap in to /image ? I tried to simply change the position to "http://www.******.com/test/image.bmp" but no success of course..

Yes there is a way.  You have to download the picture to the file sandbox, and then retrieve it via code.
