Guide for PicManager: Image Uploader

Once installed, navigate to the 'Apps' section and locate the PicManager: Image Uploader by Amasty.

 

The app's home page provides essential instructions for the proper functioning of the uploading feature.

 

Image uploading

Begin by naming your images with the SKU of your products. If you are uploading multiple images for the same product, add a number at the end of each image name following the hash symbol (#). For example, consider the following illustration for a product with the SKU 'sample-product':

 

sample-product.png

sample-product#2.png

sample-product#3.png

 

Note: avoid using a hash symbol (#) in the SKU.

 

Next, you can either drag and drop the images or choose them directly from your computer.

Alternatively, you have the option to compress all the images into a ZIP file and upload that ZIP file. Note that the name of the ZIP file doesn't matter; only the image names inside are considered.

 

Note: we support the following file formats: .png, .jpg, .jpeg, .gif. The maximum file size allowed is 1 GB.

 

After you've added the necessary files, find and click the 'Start Uploading' button.

 

Note: there's a limit to downloading 1000 images at once. It's recommended to avoid simultaneous downloads as it can affect download speed.

Once the upload is done, you'll be taken to a page with a grid showing matched products. Check to make sure all images are correctly matched with their respective products: 

At this point, you need to choose a strategy. Decide whether you want to add the new images to the existing ones or replace them.

 

Note: use the replace strategy with caution, as it will replace the current product images.

 

After making your choice, click 'Finish Upload.' 

 

If everything went well, a success message will appear. You can then go back to the Home Page to check the upload history:

 

On the Home Page, you'll find a history section with details about all your uploads, including their status, when they were created and finished, and a detailed log:

 

 

Product Variants

Each product variant can only have one image assigned to it. Additional images will be saved under the parent product.

Add to an existing image gallery - If the product variant didn't have any images previously, one image will be added to it, and any additional images will be linked to the main product. If there was already an image, all files will be linked to the main product at once.

Replace image - only one image can be linked to each variant. If you replace an image for a variant, it will simply remove the previously uploaded one.
