Put the images into the /media/import folder
Put the image name in your CSV file under the following columns – image, small_image and thumbnail in the format /myimagename.jpg (notice the forward slash).

is there another place to ftp the images to? I dont have the media/import directory.
i did an export and i show my current images under media/catalog/product and in there it looks like magento automatically creates a two level path based on the first two letters of the file name. There’s no way i can go create the respective folders for each and every image if i follow the export pattern. There must be some folder where i can just dump everything?
