allow managing image captions in bulk (during import or in Mass Product Changer)

allow managing image captions in bulk (during import or in Mass Product Changer)

Nov 30, 2016
Images and caption on images are very important for Google seach and others, so it seems not very difficult to add this field with the other fields. It would be great to be able to work fast on hundred and hundred photos and captions!
And more it would be interesting than the captions in the photos be automaticaly the name of the product

Thanks for a suggestion.
Right now you can edit selected image only.
see the screenshot - PrefstaShop-Mass-Product-Changer-menu.png

Right now we don't have such for Mass Product Changer.

As a quick decision - to use export - import of products with References, Product name and images.
In this case, Store Manager generates image captions in a bulk way

Screenshots are attached

Thanks for a comment.
So, you need Mass Product Changer to modify image captions in bulk.

Let's wait for users' comments and votes for this suggestion.

Very sorry but my English is not perfect...
I can't understand how I can modify image captions in bulk with Mass Product Changer, the field is not include! It can't be included in import/export... Why simply you don't modify your script to include this field everywher we need it as other fields?

to be clear, I need to put in one time for 25000 images, the text in every field NAME of product in every field IMAGE CAPTION

Good day!
Right now there is no such option in the Mass Product Changer.
As a quick decision - to do the following:
1. Export products with images
2. Import product with images.

Please note, image caption will be generated according to Product title.
So, right now in this case you'll not be able to add another text for a caption.

It's a Feature Request.
If you are interested in such implementation - please vote!

Good request.
You can create new "Custom SQL" and run it, when you need change image captions
Here's SQL query which will use meta description as image caption (or you can use meta_title or etc.)

UPDATE `ps_image_lang` SET `legend` = (
SELECT p.meta_description FROM ps_product_lang p
LEFT JOIN ps_image i ON p.id_product = i.id_product
WHERE ps_image_lang.id_image = i.id_image
AND p.id_lang = *your lang ID* ) WHERE id_lang = *your lang ID*
