Hey folks.  I'd been working through a different issue with one of the Shopify guru's, so I thought I would draw his attention to this thread.  Here's the response:

Hey Dan!

I put that thread under the nose of one of our great developers who happens to be working on the CSV import feature at the moment. However, just because he's aware of the demand doesn't necessarily mean that the feature will come imminently. However, you can bet that it would be announced on our Blog if and when it becomes available.

Thanks for letting us know, though! It'll help get the wheels moving, at least.

Talk to you soon!

No problem, Dan!

I just heard back from my pal on the dev team, and he's putting it on the radar of the team that handles that part of the admin, so here's hoping. ;)

Have a good one!

I am in desperate need of being able to add ALT text to my 9972 product images.

My customers are getting confused when selecting product variants when shopping my products as the images dont associate with the relevant variant (color) and so they don't complete checkout.

I am losing allot of business becuase of this!

The shopify CSV file needs a colum for image ALT text!

You can import and update image ALT text with Moose Sync.
