I have many product that for all practical purposes use the same image (selling engine parts, very few people could tell the difference between valves on a picture). so instead of uploading the same image for about 1000 products, is there some way or extension that allows you to use an already uploaded image over multiple products?

Thanks
Richard

Hi Richard,

For you this is good news….

If you add an image with EXACTLY the same file name to a product in Magento, it will overwrite the existing image, thus at first hand this might sound like a bad thing, actually what this means is that you can load the same image to lots of products and not have the same image duplicated in Magento‘s media folder and bloating the disk space.

Matt
PS. The bad news is that for other sellers this might be a pain in the rear as if the file names may not be unique.

Hi Matt,

That works for me :). As a follow up, what if I decide I want to change a picture using the same file name. On Magento it will show the updated image, but what about M2E Pro sync. I assume I would have to make some change on the impacted listings and the sync will update the listing with the new image?

Thanks
Richard

Hi Richard,

Very, very good question!

The honest answer is that I don’t know.

May I suggest trying it on two products and see what happens?

Oh and just to add to that, M2E uses the eBay Picture Services (EPS), so it would need to be a revision on eBay for these to take effect.
