On the open in new window issue It against www policy to force someone to open a new window or tab, but for your own use that's fine. I on my site I have an alternative for links and notification for visitors. If you give subscribers a choice and keep that in a cookie that would be fine.
As I don't use social media I'm not looking for where the images are or where they are called from but it can't be that difficult to find where they are and add to the library. Maybe check a pages source to see where they are??
