Importing Product Images in Bulk

Last updated 05/10/2017

You can upload images for multiple products in one go using our Bulk Upload Product Images feature. This article explains image requirements and explains how to upload them.


In order to upload multiple images in one go, your images must meet certain requirements:

  • Image files must be no larger than 3MB each
  • Images must be .jpg, .jpeg ,gif, .png or .bmp (Ideally images will be .jpg. Although we support .gif, .bmp and .png - we convert these images to .jpg upon upload. For images with transparency, this can cause issues with quality.)
  • Image titles must match the code of the associated product

Images can be uploaded in batches of 1000 at any one time.

Naming your Image Files

Images can appear against Products, and Product Options. For more information about where Images appear in Cin7 - see Product Images.

Product Images

For Product Images the image filename should match the Style Code of each product.

To upload 2nd and 3rd images, you must append '_2' and '_3' to the filename.

For a product with Style Code 'ball' like so:

Images should be prepared with filenames 'ball.jpg', 'ball_2.jpg' and 'ball_3.jpg' as follows:

Product Option Images

For Product Option Images the image filename should match the Code for each option.

Therefore for a t-shirt, set up like so:

Images should be prepared with filenames 'ts1-r.jpg' and 'ts1-b.jpg':

When a Product Option Image is uploaded, we also add the first image that is uploaded as a Product Image too.

Uploading your Images

Once images are titled correctly, you can then upload them.

To upload images:

  1. From the left navigation, click on Products.
  2. Hover over the Actions menu then select Bulk Upload Product Images.
  3. Either drag and drop files into the highlighted area on-screen or click Select files to find the correct folder.
  4. Click Upload to upload the images. A log of the progress will be shown on the right-hand side.
