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

To bulk upload images via FTP,

  1. Name the desired images to match the corresponding part numbers. For example, the image for part number 123456 should be renamed to "123456.jpg."
    • Accepted File Types: .jpg .png or .gif
    • To upload multiple images for a single part, add "_1", "_2" etc at the end of the filename for all additional images. For example, additional images for part number A96299 would be A96299_1.jpg and A96299_2.jpg.

  2. Create a new folder on your PC (on your desktop, portable hard drive, or flash drive) and name it "partimages-StoreHash"
    • Go to the Settings for the desired store to retrieve your StoreHash from the URL.

      After including your StoreHash, your folder's name should look something like this: "partimages-c87decba3faca6b0d9249c14dg25488b"

  3. Add all of the appropriately named images you'd like to upload to the folder.

  4. 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-StoreHash.zip" (with your StoreHash).

  5. 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

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

  7. 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.

  10. You'll be shown the upload folder. There may be some files already in the folder, but you can ignore them. Drag and drop your recently compressed "partimages-StoreHash.zip" file into the folder to upload it to our server.

Done! Your images will begin uploading automatically, and should be visible on your site within an hour or so of uploading (usually sooner).
