Image format for catalog

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I am now up to inserting my goods into the catalog - with the images, do they need to be a certain format? Most of the images I have are jpg. When putting the pictures in, some work and some don't - they just have an X. Are they required to be a certain size or smaller? The ones that work are only around 250kb and the ones that didn't are over 600kb. Or do they need to be named in a certain way?

 

Thank you

 

Kat

Hey Kat,

 

The jpg format is fine, as is the file sizes.

Each image needs a unigue name, no duplicates. By default osC uploads the images to the image folder, so if you upload a second image with a similar name as a previous image it will get over-written. I use a simple naming method to avoid such problems - I start with an abbreviation for the manufacturer such as RMX, then I add the item number such as 1406. So for the thumbnail image I have RMX_1406_T.jpg and the large image RMX_1406.jpg.

 

Another thing to look for using your host CPanel or your FTP program - did the image actually upload?

 

A :thumbsup: where an image is supposed to be means the image is not where it is supposed to be according to the path.

 

Hope this helps get you started!
