In addition to the normal product images you set up on the display tab, you can add any number of additional images to a product. These will be displayed on the detailed product page using thumbnail images which the customer can click on to view the full-size image. To add a product image, enter the following:
Image File – Click the Browse button to select the fullsize image file from your computer. The image will be uploaded to the ‘Products’ directory under your images directory. Note that only gif, jpeg and png images can be uploaded.
Subdirectory – By default, product images are saved in the “products” directory under your image directory. If you wish to further sort them out you can enter an additional directory path below that here.
Thumbnail Image – You can upload the thumbnail image manually, or leave this field blank and the store will automatically create the thumbnail from the fullsize image using the built-in image component function.
Gallery – Images can be assigned to either a Public or Private image gallery. Public images are viewable to all customers, private ones are only viewable to customers that are currently logged in. You can easily modify the code for this feature to use the private gallery for other specific user groups.
Priority – As throughout the store, priority will determine the sort order of the images.
Caption – You can enter a caption to be displayed below the photo on the full-size image popup.
Click on Upload to add the image to the gallery. You can also Update or Delete images that have been added previously.
