Product Images



Product images can be any dimensions but must be no larger 500 Kb in size to be uploaded. Neto will then automatically resize and compress your images based on the settings you define in the system setup.

The system will also create multiple versions of each image you upload. This includes 2 x thumbnail images and 1 main image.  These images are stored in the following folders on your Neto server.

  • /assets/full/
  • /assets/thumbL/
  • /assets/thumb/

How to set or change the product and other images sizes

You can change the image sizes of your product and other images by navigating to: Image Settings under the cog icon (top right) in the control panel.

Product image settings

The system will re-size / optimise any new uploaded images based on these settings. Please allow up to 5 minutes for image processing if resizing and optimisation is required.

Images uploaded prior to changing the settings above will not be resized to the new settings. However, these images can be reprocessed. Check out How do I reprocess my product images? for assistance.

Importing Product Images

There is 3 ways to import product images in bulk:

1. Define image URL in product import file

When importing a file of products you can define a URL to download images from per product in your import file. The system will get the images from this specified location and download them to your Neto server. This is ideal if your are importing products and images from a 3rd party website or supplier.

2. Upload .ZIP file containing multiple images via Control Panel

Provided your images are named exactly the same as your SKUs, you can bulk upload them through your Neto control panel. This is a quick and easy way to upload a large number of images at once.

  1. Name your images exactly the same as the related products SKU.
  2. Save the images to your computer.
  3. Zip the images into a folder making sure not to create a folder within a folder.
  4. Go to: Neto Control Panel  > Import/ Export > Bulk Import Images
  5. Upload your .zip file to the corresponding image folder (eg: main product images, alt 1 product images etc)

 

3. Upload images to your Neto FTP server

If you have FTP access to your Neto server (you can request access by emailing support@neto.com.au) then you can upload images directly via FTP. Uploaded images are resized and optimised automatically by the system.

  1. Name your images exactly the same as the related products SKU.
  2. Upload to the following location on your Neto FTP server
    - Main/Full Images (private/www/temp/imagedrop/full/)
    - Alt 1 to Alt 100 Images (private/www/temp/imagedrop/alt_1/ to private/www/temp/imagedrop/alt_100/)
  3. Once you have uploaded your images to the image drop folder of choice, the system will automatically resize and optimise your images as per your settings in admin > system setup > image settings.

Note:  Please allow some time for images to be processed. The system processes around 1,000 large images per hour on average.
