How to Bulk Upload Images

Uploading images in bulk can save you a lot of time. RevolutionParts makes this simple!

Select your system below and follow the steps to bulk upload images!

 

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 (ex: desktop, portable hard drive or flash drive) and name it partimages-storeid (Your StoreID can be retrieved by support. Please request via phone or email) 
  3. Rename Your Folder: ex: partimages-c87decba3faca6b0d9249c14de25488b 
  4. Add all images you'd like to bulk upload to the partimages-storeid folder
  5. Right click on the folder itself (NOT the images inside the folder) and select "Sent to," "Compressed (zipped) folder." This will create a new zip file of your folder.
  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.)
  7. Paste this address in the the bar: ftp://[email protected]/Uploads
  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.

  6. Rename the zip file to partimages-storeid.zip (contact Support to obtain your Store ID).  The file should be named something like this: partimages-c87decba3faca6b0d9249c14de25487b.zip (with your own storeid instead).
  7. Open Finder (or click an empty space on your Desktop) and click on "Go" from the Finder menu. Then, click on "Connect to Server" at the bottom of the list.

  12. 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-storeid.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).

Uploading images in bulk will save a lot of time. RevolutionParts makes this simple. To do this follow these steps:

  1. Rename the image the same as the part number, SKU, or MPN that you want it to upload for. If you are uploading multiple images for the same part, end the file name with _1, _2, etc. In the example pictured, we are uploading four .jpg images for part 014154390280.
    • Images can be either in .jpg .bmp .png or .gif
  2. Zip all of the image files. The name of the zipped file does not matter.
    • For Windows, right click on the folder itself (NOT the images inside the folder) and select "Sent to," "Compressed (zipped) folder"
    • For Mac, right click on the folder itself (NOT the images inside the folder) and select, "Compress # Items."  This will create a new zip file containing the folder with your images.
  3. Next, log into your Control Panel on manage.revolutionparts.com.
  4. Click on the gear icon in the upper right hand corner.
