Uploading Product Images via FTP

Question

Is it possible to upload product images via FTP?

 

I've created an FTP user and browsed the FTP directories but can't see the test image i uploaded.

Actually I'm not sure you've read that question right. You can easily upload images via ftp and attach them to products.

 

Simply make a folder in your themes directory for product images.

 

e.g. /themes/ANYTHEME/productimagefolder

 

FTP the images there and then attach to correct product by including the relevant URL in the CSV upload like so.

 

http://yoursiteURL.com/themes/ANYTHEME/productimagefolder/images.jpg

 

Worked fine for me and I've added this answer so people aren't put off Prestashop Cloud due to that incorrect answer.

I think the intention was another: Add pictures directly to a product without mapping

.

a) This is generally not possible, cause you need to map image to product and this is only possible when uploaded with the product (manually added to the product, or as a mapped csv import file) like Vincent told before.

b ) you cannot upload images to folder /img on cloud, cause this folder does not exist, i.e. you don't have access to it.

 

What you of course can do, is to add your images via csv import to your shop. For this you can load the images to EVERY storage possibility on the net (one drive, Prestashop Cloud own folder for that, like you suggested, etc. ) and from there map the images to a product with an URL location on your csv (http://yoururl.com/image1.jpg for ex.). For mass import this works fine. But as Vincent correctly answered. There is no access to the image folder of your products on Prestashop Cloud (/img)

With all due respect, I totally disagree, the question seems very clear to me as I can't think of a single reason someone would want to manually upload images without attaching via CSV import..

 

But that's beside the point anyway, interpretations can vary and you are entitled to your opinion.

 

My answer was based on the fact that this thread is pretty much the only relevant result in google for queries to do with FTP images to Prestashop Cloud and a flat "no you can't" is so unhelpful it's laughable, particularly if people are just Googling to see if the bulk image upload in Prestashop Cloud is possible.

 

I don't think it does any harm answering both questions here for new users, given the thread's prominence in Google results for things like https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=ftp+image+upload+prestashop+cloud

On cloud the folder /img on where all your pictures are (product, manufacturer, etc...) is not accessible:

Hi,

 

I'm trying to bulk upload images and I put them all into an upload folder on the FTP.

 

I uploaded the CSV with the folder/image path. Nothing is different. Am I meant to regenerate? Or is it that once you upload the CSV the images should upload automatically???

On cloud the folder /img on where all your pictures are (product, manufacturer, etc...) is not accessible:

 

attachicon.gifcloudftp.jpg

ok

To better specify

 

even for inexperienced users.

 

however the link to be included in the CSV is as follows:

 

 

 

"http://xxxxxx.pswebstore.com/themes/default-bootstrap/img/imag/m200.png"

 

 

http:   //xxxxxx.pswebstore.com/themes/default-bootstrap/img/imag/m200.png

 

"xxxxxx" you have to change it with name of your store

 

 

I also solved error that happened already in an attempt to load the CSV file:

 

"JSON.parse: unexpected character at line 1"

 

simply delete all the historical CSV file
