Import Multiple Item Pictures

You can import multiple item pictures in one go. Simply name your picture files with names corresponding to your item numbers, compress them to a zip file, and then use the Import Item Pictures page to manage which item pictures to import.

All common file formats are supported.

To name picture files by the item names and prepare the ZIP file

    Item No. File Name
    1000 1000.bmp
    1001 1001.bmp
    1002 1002.bmp
  2. Collect all the files in a ZIP file. For example, in Windows Explorer, select the files, and then choose Send to, Compressed (zipped) folder.

    A line for each item and picture is created on the Import Item Pictures page.
