Importing Multiple Images via Import
There are two ways you may upload images into MarketTime. The most common way to do this is by importing multiple images at once.
Items must have previously been imported prior to image importing.
To import images for your Manufacturer's items in bulk, navigate to the Import/Export Items option found under Maintenance in the Navigation Menu.
Here you will be asked to select a Manufacturer, then you will be given access to the buttons below.
Click the Import Images button to proceed.
Similar to importing other images or product files into MarketTime, this will allow you to browse for your desired images and upload them.
Criteria for the images is found just above the Choose button:
Images must be named exactly as the Item Number appears in MarketTime for the system to match your images with the correct products (ex. 1003.jpg with item 1003).
Select your images, then click Open to move to the next step.
Your selected images will then appear in the popup window, as seen below:
If this looks correct, click the Upload button, and the images will process, and disappear from the list as they are uploaded.
Once complete, the window will close and you’ll receive a success message.
You can view your images by clicking the Grid View button, or choosing to view/edit the individual item:
Importing Images Individually
Importing an image for a single item may be done within the item itself.
When using this method, the image name does not have to match the Item Number, since you're importing the image directly onto that item.
To do this, view an item's details by clicking the Edit button for the corresponding item, then clicking the Upload Image button:
Importing Multiple Images for a Single Item
The import process for importing more than one image for a single item (for a total of 6 images) is identical to the regular "bulk" import, with one difference.
When importing multiple images for a single item, they must still contain the Item Number, but it should be followed by two underscores and a number, as seen in the example below:
The Default image for the item will be the "regularly" named image (without the underscores and additional number).
Additional images can be manually added using the Add button next to the main image while editing an item, again for a total of 6.
Once you've uploaded multiple images, you can choose which one to set as the default image by choosing your desired image, and clicking the Set as Default button.
