CSV import product if image does not exist

I was wondering if it was possible to still import a product using CSV even if a product image dosn’t exist.

We will be using an automatically generated CSV file form our suppliers to populate our online front.  Not all of the products have images assigned to them - it is also impossible for us to filter through all products to check if they have images or not.

Every item in the CSV file has an image assigned to them , and we have uploaded the 90% of images that do exist.

When Magento imports, if the product dosn’t have an existing image it completely skips that product, is there anyway to have magento import the product with no image when it realizes the image isn’t on the server?  We are using 1.6.1.0

Are You sure it skips the product with no image? I’ve got the same situation, but is says “Image does not exist.” and imports product anyway.

You can give this a go: www.file2cart.com
it imports products with all necessary product info from csv. i don’t think images will cause a problem.
