How to Upload and Process Images
Uploading images for your products can be completed in a few easy steps. Images are automatically resized for you so that they are displayed correctly in your store. The image auto resizer and image cropper has been custom built to make this process as simple as possible.
When you create a product the option to upload an image will be available to you. An example of the main image feature and gallery image buttons are below:
Click the “Upload Product Image” button to get started. (The button below with the large + symbol is for adding gallery images).
When you activate image uploading the following Media screen will appear:
Important: For best results, we advise that you upload an image with a width and height which is greater than or equal to 1200px. This will give the best resolution for your customers when they view the image and also use the image zoom tool on your product page.
Drop or select your image from your computer using the Media window.
When your image has uploaded you will have the option to select and crop. Click the “Select and Crop” button to continue.
If you would like a nice square image which fills the full space of the product image view, then, we recommend you to crop your image using the cropping tool. The crop board is the dotted line square with the handles on the edges. You can use the handles to resize the square and move it over the portion of the image which you would like to crop.
When you are happy with the cop placement, click “Crop Image” to perform the cropping action.
If you do not want to perform any cropping, then click “Skip Cropping”. The Media tool will perform the resize and then pad the image automatically into a square so that it displays correctly on the product screen.
