Importing images

Hello,

So far I’ve been able to import products from my zencart shop to magento however, I am not sure how to import the images. I looked at an example export of a Magento product with an image and the value was this:

h/a/hal_1.jpg

It looks like it creates two directories… how would I import images from another ecommerce solution (like zencart) where all I have is the image name + the image?

I was wanting to know as well.  Importing by hand would take so long and waste man hours.

Has anyone actually managed to import any products with images. I have tried a few different approaches, but suspect that is doesn’t actually work yet.  Does anyone know for sure?

(the idea in the linked thread doesn’t seem to work)

It appears when I try to import my csv file it is not getting any of the image filenames that I pass.  The images exist in “media/catalog/product”, but they do not import into the database.  Is this the same issue everyone else is having?

@Jake

Yup, same issue. I’m pretty sure the team’s hammering out a Fix. Especially with 1.0 coming soon, I’m assuming it has to do with the product_media_gallery table not being mapped correctly. But that’s just a guess. But again, yes, its the same issue we’re all facing right now with imports =/

I just wrote another way (updated way I guess) to do some import stuff here is the link http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/4694/ ... If you like it just leave your opinion…

About the image import, I’m also doing some coding in order to write the 2 level directory… when everything will work fine (or almost), I’ll take some time to write a wiki article… smile
