Upload Product Images

It would be nice to add some text to explain how the images work.

I just discovered that I could use the same image for both and it automatically re-sizes the image. This is a great feature and it would be a shame if people didn't realize that they didn't have to make two different size images.

It would also be a huge time saver if we could specify a default folder for store images (don't know where they're stored now). That way we could upload all the images using FTP and just copy the sku into the field instead of browsing for each image. Right now you are forced to use Browse even if you know the name of the image.

Example:

Store Image Folder:
siteroot/store/images

SKU: 12345
<label for="ProductThumb" class="readonly-image">Catalog Image:</label> 12345
<label for="ProductImage" class="readonly-image">Detail Image:</label> 12345

The Browse button would still be used to upload images one at a time.

I would also like to see the file name of the image displayed on the product update page so we can make sure it's correct.

The reason for the upload fields is because we resize the images like you said. Those sizes are used in various places so if you were to specify just the image path yourself, the image sizes might not be correct and could affect the page layouts. The images are stored in the imagesupload folder right now.

So there is no way to FTP all the images and them pull from a folder on the site? Having to browse through hundreds of local images twice for every product could be a deal breaker. It would at least help if the second image would default to the first.

Right now I simply paste the name (copied from the SKU field) into a field for each image type, and it pulls from the appropriate folder. All images have the same name as the SKU and are stored in Thumb, Detail, Expanded, etc. folders. This also makes it easy to make sure that I have the right image with the right SKU.
