I am developing a Magento site using v. 1.7. The site is working great so far and I am able to import
products and images just fine.

The problem, however, is that although I can see the images on the front end, if I go to Manage Products and pull up
one of the products I just imported and go to the Images tab, it shows No Image.

Please help!

Many thanks,

Cynthia gulp

Hmm.. difficult to tell right away what may cause the issue.

Can you please tell me - maybe you upgraded from older Magento version recently?

And also can you please provide me the link as you product image you have at your web-site as an example.

It may help to provide you possible suggestions or solution.

Hi, did you ever find a solution to your problem? I’m having the exact same issue. v. 1.7. Products imported fine, show up on the front-end, but nothing on the backend under products > images. This is a very odd frustrating problem. Is there anyone else who has worked this out?

I was having this issue and solved it by adding a value to the field: _media_attribute_id in the import csv.

If you manually insert one image and then export, you will see a number in that field, I just put that same number into _media_attribute_id for all the products in the import csv, and they now show up in the admin also.

For me this was not enough to solve the problem. I had to add two more fields:

_media_position

_media_is_disabled

to get the job done.
