That would be a function of how you create the product catalog display. not so much a function of eCart.

your product catalog could certainly be set up to display multiple images per product.

any innate features for multiple images?

Jason,
Are there any default methods for adding or setting up the catalog for multiple images?
I mean, I can create a database to do that, just wondering if there is a pre planned one already ready to go. Or if not, just outline for me the structure you are imagining.
Thanks
Jeff

it really depends on how you want it to work.

it could be a static catalog, or a database driven catalog.

you could use Power Gallery to create a gallery for each product, or you could simply add thumbnail image tags for each image.

There is no default way to accomplish this, it all depends on how you want it to work.

It is database driven. Was trying Cartweaver but it has trouble with multiple images per
product

One way to do this is simply to create a new table in your database and call it itemimages or something like that.

have a unique id as PK, an itemid as FK to your items table, and a field for url path for your image.

This way your database can store as many images as you require for each item.

(NB Your item insert page will need to be slightly more complex, storing most data in the items table, and some in the itemimages table, so you will need a normal insert behavior, followed by a multiple insert behavior.)

good luck
