How to upload images from an http server directly to Netlify Large Media

I am using git lfs and Netlify Large Media. The site I am building is a replacement for an existing site and several hundred highres images are already publicly available on a server. Since I am at the end of a remote, expensive and quite poor internet connection I must find a way to transfer those images directly to NLM, without downloading them to my machine. Any suggestions?

No other option so far as I am aware. As far as I know you will have to run git and the netlify CLI from a machine that has the images on it - be that “your machine” or “some other machine”.
