This article will explain how to upload the following types of images:
1. Uploading up to 5 additional images for each item
2. Uploading specific images for each color variant of a style (matrix items only)
3. Uploading a color "box" to be used for all items where that color is used.
1. You can upload up to 5 additional images for each item in your catalog. Each additional image can be up to 5MB.
In this same screen you can also Upload File Attachments and Links for Items.
To upload additional images go to the Catalog section on the Pepperi Admin interface.
Click on the "Upload Images" button for the item.
Upload the additional images one at a time. You can remove images as well by clicking on the Remove image button.
The first image in the list will be the top image displayed in the catalog view.
You can also load up to 5 additional images in bulk using the Image Uploader.
To view the images, you must configure the Large view or the Item Information Page Portrait view to include "Item Images", and all the images loaded will be displayed. See Configure Order Center Views
For matrix items that have 2 Dimensions, you can upload a Color specific image for each color (Dimension 1) that the item comes in.
For example, if a shirt comes in 5 different colors you can:
a) Upload a variant item specific image of the shirt in each color to show next to the color name in the matrix view.
b) You can upload a color "box" (a solid image of the color the shirt comes in) to be used for every instance of that color in your catalog.
The item specific images can be uploaded in bulk using the same process as uploading the main image. See the article: How To Bulk Upload Images
The Dimension 1 images, which associate a color "box" with all instances of a particular color in your catalog, are uploaded as a one-time process.
2. Uploading variant item specific images:
Upload the files you wish to associate with color combinations of items using the bulk image upload.
The files must be named with the item code of the particular color/size combination item code.
For example: If you have a "style" NR-10025 (main style code) that comes in size 36, 38 and 40 and colors red, black and white:
You have the "variant" item codes: NR-10025-36-R, NR-10025-36-B, NR-10025-36-W, NR-10025-38-R, NR-10025-38-B, NR-10025-38-W, NR-10025-40-R, NR-10025-40-B, NR-10025-40-W
In this example you would need to upload an image for each color size combination.
For example for the color White: NR-10025-36-W.jpg, NR-10025-38-W.jpg, and NR-10025-40-W.jpg
The file names must correspond to these "child" item codes. Same requirements apply as far as file size - up to 5MB.
Example file names: NR-10025-36-R.jpg, NR-10025-36-B.jpg, NR-10025-36-W.jpg, etc.
Upload these by bulk and they will appear next to the color name on the matrix (you can enlarge them as well, just like any other image on Pepperi).
3. Uploading a color "box" image:
Go to Settings -> Items -> Variant Dimensions
In the Dimension1 tab, tick the color you wish to load a "swatch" for adn select Action -> Edit. Upload the color swatch image. The image must be 98 x 74 pixels in size, in JPG, GIF or PNG format.
The new color "swatch" image will be displayed on the matrix view for all instances of this color in your catalog.
