Hey guys.

Just installed OpenCart which is a great piece of software, but with one little thing is missing which i think would help improve the cart alot.

Not too sure if this has been suggested before..

When adding a product it would help (and save alot of time) if you were given the option to upload/add images while in "Add Product" instead of having to do it before, then selecting the image from the drop down.

I think the current way seems abit long winded and could become confusing when you have hundreds of images to select from in the drop down.

Cheers :)

In the meantime, you can achieve this by using the Import/Export Contribution and doing it in the excel spreadsheet

The way I handle images is this:

- upload all your image files in one go to the server's image directory via FTP
- download an exported spreadsheet via OpenCart admin panel
- edit and enter all the image file names into the category or product worksheets
- upload the imported spreadsheet via OpenCart's admin panel, this will add the entries into the DB

Hey,

I totally agree with woody's point.

I think would be much easier to add products if you could add the image at the same time :)

Yea, you'd think so... tho zen-cart does it this way and its also a pain to do it that way too. Neither way I've seen implemented is really ideal.
