Naming Image Files

After you’ve gathered your product images, it’s important to make sure they get associated with your products correctly.

There are a couple ways to do that, either way is fine:


1. Name the files so they match your Item Numbers

Name the files using this convention:

Image Number (+) Underscore (+) Multiple Image Number (+) File Format

example: 32965_1.jpg

Let’s look at each part of a sample filename:

32965 start with your Item Number
_ then we add an underscore (_)
1 then we add a number if there are multiple images for the product
.jpg then add the file format


Here are a few sample filenames:

How to name images for a product with only 1 image:
320496.jpg   (320496_1.jpg is also fine)

Here’s how to name the images for a product with 4 images:
762309_1.jpg
762309_2.jpg
762309_3.jpg
762309_4.jpg

2. ...OR, Associate files in a spreadsheet

Instead of renaming your images to match your Item Numbers, you can include a reference link to the image files in a spreadsheet format.

This reference link can be a filename(s) or a web URL(s). When using a web URL, we can download the files; if using filenames only, be sure to send us the files.

Sample layouts


products with single images
image-references-01

products with multiple images... single row for each item
image-references-02

products with multiple images... multiple rows
image-references-03

Products with web URLs
image-references-04
