Personally I work in .xml format in Excel. I use a column for each image size
Easier to orgonize.
I had accidentally discovered that you can upload all of your products into Magento along with any images. Then you can re-import the same data with new images and they will be added to the product. Now I will simply be running a test on how to remove the old ones.
You could use this to add multiple views but exclude is checked by default. This prevents the other product images from displaying on the product page.
If I find the solution to that, it would make importing multiple images easy enough.
These may be a stupid questions...However, my /media directory doesn’t contain a directory by the name of import. I’m using the default profile of “Import All Products” and have version 184.108.40.206
1) Do I simply make an import directory and place it in the media directory or does the fact that this directory doesn’t exist mean I’m missing something?
2) I’m using the same image for 100+ products. I entered the first product manually and then used the export feature to have a sample path (/a/s/image.jpg) to duplicate in my csv file for importation. The image appears for the one product entered manually but doesn’t appear for the products imported via the csv file. Why is this?
Thanks in advance for any help understanding why I haven’t had success importing image paths with new products.
i think a lot of people had the same troubles. You can find a really useful information about possible solutions for common problems connected with image import in this article. Magento image import
Hope somebody will find this helpful
So we’re in a weird situation. We followed the directions here to import the images: use the SKUs as the filenames and put them in
and then we did the import, which Magento said was successful.
Afterwards, the backend said that some indexes were out of date; so we re-indexed, and now all the images are showing.
However, if you go to Manage Products and edit a product, the Images tab shows no images. It just says “Image type and information need to be specified for each store view. ” and “No Image” is selected for Base Image, Small Image and Thumbnail.
We’re running Magento Community Edition 220.127.116.11. I even tried putting labels for each of the images (”Product Image” for image_label, ”Small Image” for small_image_label, and ”Product Thumbnail” for thumbnail_label.
Has anyone else encountered this? Also, we have these fields for all of the products in the CSV:
