Good day,

I have a little problem with importing images to my store. I am looking for an expression or solution to import only images to products, that have non.

I've tried many import configuration to success, but no luck. The best result I could get were duplicate pictures on existed products and added on non-existed. I know there is an option to delete pictures before import to have it clean, however this is not solution for 7000 products every night. I am looking for import expression something like IF PICTURE EXISTS IGNORE ELSE INSERT or INSERT IGNORE. I am already using CONCAT expression for picure import.

Thank you for your answer.

Hello!

Thank you for your question.

The Store Manager has a built in Store Diagnostics utility allowing to find the items with missing images and product without images: http://screencast.com/t/uC2zmVe7ghHl

You can export the list of the product with missing images to the Excel in order to add product image URL's to the file and import it back with Import/Export Wizard.

Currently this is the only option to find the products without images.

In further releases we're planning to improve the Store Diagnostics and add a feature allowing to map the products (without images) with the .csv file.
