Reusable images.

Is there a way to reuse product images?

My client publishes comic books and sells variant covers. A variant cover is the same comic but with different cover art. These are generally upsell or incentive items. The thing is for their listings they’d like to show the cover and up to 5 pages of art. However, to show the additional 5 pages they have to be uploaded to each product. At least that’s all I’ve figured out.

Are there reusable images?

Thanks

You could upload your images to some /media/ folder, create custom attribute in a product with image names, and show in your templates like this:

<img src="<?php echo Mage::getBaseUrl('media').'myimages/'.$_product->getMyImage() ?>">
