I give up.  I’ve spent three days trying to upload images via the browser’s dataflow method. 

exporting the products first, I matched the fields EXACTLY, and

1.  All images in /media/import
2.  file format for .csv is /filename.jpg
3.  Tried all combinations of profile information upon import/export
4.  made sure that the cell value in the ‘image’ cell was actual and not a formula
5.  working on OS leopard but exporting formats have been as Windows CSV (have excel on my local machine)
6.  I give up

I’ve imported everything fine from OSX Leopard.  Make sure your permissions are correct and that it’s readable by user,group, and others.

You can try my Project Gallery Importer.  If it can’t read the images or images are missing, it’ll display an error messages during import.  It’s not silent like the built-in importer. Products with missing images won’t be imported.

Sorry, I’m a novice:

What permissions should I check?  Is there a particular directory I should Check?

thanks

If you are running Leopard, just right click on the file, and select Get Info from the menu.  All the way at the bottom, you should see permissions.

Or just run from the terminal:

chmod 777 *.jpg

when you are under the var/import/images folder.

Here’s lines 134 and 135 of gallery.php

if ($value && $attribute->getBackendType() == ‘decimal’) {
$setValue = $this->getNumber($value);

does that mean that I’m missing something or have a wrong format in the .csv?
