Managing images inside an item
You can use this section inside the item editor to edit a particular item's images.
However, if you had hundreds of items, doing this for every item would be very time-consuming.
If you have a high number of items, you will need to make use of the Bulk Image Manager to quickly and effectively manage every image for your items and groups. Using this tool means that you can effortlessly guarantee that every image is exactly right, which is very important given that high-definition, optimised images are the bedrock of any successful ecommerce website.ecommerce, online shop, bulk management, images,
Open the editor, click on Basket, and enter the Items section.
If you have a high number of items, you can use this search bar to select a particular item by typing in either its name, a part of its summary, its price, or its code.
Click in the box above the item images to add a new image.
The tick confirms that the image has successfully uploaded.
You can use these two options to delete or rotate any image inside an item.
The image in the top left-hand side is your thumbnail image - namely, the image that customers will first see when they land on this item.
You can change this thumbnail image by holding down on an image and moving it to the top left-hand side of the image area.
Images highlighted in blue are of GREAT quality, while images highlighted in green are of OK quality.
If your images are highlighted in red, your images are of POOR quality and should be replaced with images of a higher-definition.
Click on Basket and enter the Extras section.
Click on the name of a group and enter edit mode.
If you've created groups but never assigned any particular thumbnail to a group, you will notice that this group has not been given a thumbnail.
When you create a group and fail to add its own image, the system takes the primary thumbnail of the FIRST item to be added into the group and uses that as the group thumbnail.
This may lead to your group having an image that you don't want, so be careful.
You can also use this area to ensure that your category thumbnails are absolutely perfect ahead of creating a category collection to serve as an attractive shop window.
