Hi, 
Follow the below steps:- 

1) First Upload your images in dropbox.

2) Right Click on your images and copy dropbox link

3) Past the dropbox link and fill the two column one for main image (Image Src)and other for Variant images (Variant Image) 

4) Prepare your excel and upload in Shopify shopify-images-upload.JPG

This works but can be extremely tedious for a large amount of products.

Best to use a image host that DOESNT scramble image urls and offers predictable text structures.

Hi @madhikar 

 

You can do this rather easily with Airtable. Airtable natively supports the loading of images from a file on your computer or via URL. You can either manage your images via a separate table (useful for specifying alt tags and the order of your images) or using our Power Images functionality that embeds images right into your product/variant tables. Read more about how to manage your Shopify Images with Airtable and also how to bulk update your Shopify data in general.

Has anyone solved the Dropbox delima?

I am trying to bulk upload images (via dropbox) based on a CSV with <barcode>.png as the formula to match a large number of images.

 

But even in the Shopify image editor "add media from URL" doesn't work with Dropbox.

Hello, Just to confirm  understood you well...
So if I got a product with multiple images, i fill in the whole template for the first row and then i just copy and paste the handle and insert the other image links in the image src column under each other, leaving all the rest of columns empty?

 

Thank you in advance

The bulk image upload isn't working for me, and I"m not sure why. 

 

I have a series of items that share an image, so I'm trying to upload an image that's common to all of them, in addition to the image that is different among each one. the primary image is there. So I exported the group of images to a csv. I used google sheets as requested (Though I prefer Open Office, but I got error messages). 

 

I uploaded the image into shopify files, and put that image URL into the spreadsheet in the image source field

 

If I have all the fields populated for both images, the import shows no errors, but the secondary image, that I"ve put as Image position 2, does not get added to the item. No error, just no image.

 

If I put only the header and the image link info, I get errors and it won't import.

 

I've tried it by importing the images for only one item, and when it imports, there's still no second image and no error.

 

I must be missing something. I've gone over all the csv info and the bulk import info, but I"m stumped.

 

I am pretty proficient with CSV files and database imports and exports. I assume this works as it seems others have had success, I'm just seeming to be missing something. And yes, the theme supports multiple images, but they're not showing up in the item card.

 

I'll take any hints or tips you have.

 

Thanks, Oz

Quite incredible, isn't it, that a shopping platform has no simple way of bulk uploading product images? It's an absolute prerequisite to setting up the site, and if you have thousands of images, as I do, you're left with either paying someone to sit and upload one image at a time manually, or try one of the discussed 'workarounds'. It's one thing when you have a free site that has these ridiculous scenario's, but when you're paying top dollar...
