Hi.  I am new to Shopify.  When adding a product manually to my website (using Dawn theme)  i got this message:

There is 1 error with this product:

  • The following image IDs do not exist or do not belong to the product: 28389935448115,28389928927283

Can anyone tell me what it means and how to fix it?  And how to identify the item associated with the numbers?

Many thanks

This is an accepted solution.

I had this problem and worked out it was caused by product images that were copied when I duplicated a product. Once I removed or replaced those product images, this fixed the problem

Hi! I know it's an old post, but faced this issue today. It was when I replaced pics on a product, using compressed files for lower size. I have size as a variant on this product and each size (S-M-L) was associated with a picture of the product's collection. When replaced the pics, there was one still showing on sizes, but was removed from the collection (by me). So this was the error coming from. It took me a while to figure out, because with the numbers it's hard to identify the pic. I replaced the old pic on size with one of the recently added. This solved the issue.

The right time is now.

The true reason is that when you uploaded images those got an ID for internal references to that ressource. You attached that ID to provide individual variants with their featured image.
When you deleted the images without deattaching those IDs from the variants this is exactly where this error showed up: "The following image IDs do not exist or do not belong to the product"

You need to unattach those IDs.

I just had the same issue and once I made sure each variant had a different photo, it resolved the issue.
