BVC 5 - Additional Images

Each product can be displayed with an unlimited amount of images.

Images are uploaded and saved to the Products folder within your web store. ASPNET user (Windows 2000) or IIS_WPG user (Windows 2003) must have Write permissions to upload images.

To ensure fast image browsing, it is recommended that images be uploaded to logical folders limiting the number of images in one folder.

Additional Images will appear when a customer clicks the “More Pictures” button when viewing a product.

Adding Additional Images

Select the “Additional Images” link in the left menu when creating a new product or editing an existing product.

Click the "new" as display below in Figure 2 to add a new additional image.

You can manually enter the image path in the “File Name” field or use the “Select” button to browse for an image. The “Caption” defines the text that will appear below an image when displayed on the site. The “Alternate Text” is displayed when hovering over an image with a mouse cursor. Alternate text is also displayed in place of an image if the customer has image viewing turned off in their browser.

Clicking the “select” button opens the image browser as displayed in Figure 3 below.

Let’s discuss each section of the image browser.
