This module bulk uploads product images to and imports from “/media/import” folder into Magento. Supported images formats: jpg, jpeg, gif, png.
In order to load images using this tool, images names must correspond to the products skus.
Multiple images can be loaded per product, provided that the images naming convention is maintained as follows:
Base image named as sku.file_extension; Additional images named as sku_number.file_extension
Example: Product sku:SR159; Base image name:SR159.jpg; additional images names: SR159_1.jpg, SR159_2.jpg, etc.
NOTE: Base image will be selected as product’s Base, Small and Thumbnail (Use Magento Product->Images tab to change these selections).
1. Login to Magento Admin panel and create product using “Catalog->Manage Products->Add Product. Generate a unique SKU for your product: e.g. SKU: SR159
2. Prepare images for the product (SKU:SR159).
Rename your images to reflect the product SKU as follows:
Base image name: SR159.jpg
Second image name: SR159_2.jpg
3. Create and repeat for other products, as needed. Ready to upload
