Requirements


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 .gif, .bmp and .png are supported, these file types are converted to .jpg upon upload. For images with transparency, this can cause quality issues.
  • Image titles must match the code of the associated product.

Images can be uploaded in batches of 1,000 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 the Product Images Help article.
