When adding images to 10+ parts, we suggest uploading these via the ftp as it can save you a lot of time. The steps below are for Windows and Mac users.

Uploading 10 images or less, you can also use via Bulk Import.

**IMPORTANT: The bulk image loader will not work if the part numbers are not:

  • A) exact matches
  • B) already present in the catalog.  

** The bulk image loader can't retroactively link images to parts after they are added; the parts must be in the catalog first in order for the bulk image loader to work properly. **

WINDOWS INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Name your Image File - your image will need to reflect the corresponding part # (ex: 12345978.jpg)
    • Accepted File Types: .jpg .png or .gif
    • Multiple Image Upload for one part - Add a "_1" or "_2" and the end of the filename (ex - additional images for the same part # A9629991322 would be A9629991322_1.jpg and A9629991322_2.jpg

  2. Create a new folder on your PC (on your desktop, portable hard drive, or flash drive) and name it partimages-IDNUMBER 
    (You can get your IDNUMBER by emailing support@revolutionparts.com and asking for it.)
     

  3. Rename your folder by replacing "IDNUMBER" with the ID you received from Support. Example: partimages-c87decba3faca6b0d9249c14dg25488b 

  4. Add all images you'd like to bulk upload to the partimages-IDNUMBER folder

  5. Right click on the folder itself (NOT the images inside the folder) and select "Send to," "Compressed (zipped) folder." This will create a new zip file of your folder. The zipped name should be named, "partimages-IDNUMBER.zip"

  6. Open a folder on your desktop or "open explorer" located directly right of the Start menu for Windows users.(Images may vary from your Windows open explorer depending on your version of Windows.)step1.png

  7. Paste this address in the the bar: ftp://anonymous@dropbox.revolutionparts.com/Uploadsstep2.png

  8. Drag your zip file with all of your images to this page and drop it in.

The upload will begin processing, and may take a few minutes to complete. After that, your images will be visible on your website!

**Please note that the bulk image loader will not work if the part numbers are not:

  • A) exact matches
  • B) already present in the catalog.  

The bulk image loader can't retroactively link images to parts after they are added; the parts must be in the catalog first in order for the bulk image loader to work properly.
