1) Make 1000 images links in Database
2) Upload 1000 images

Uploaded only 500 images and i break process and delete all FTP Taska .

1) I set Option - Skip Images if product alredy has Image
2) Upload files

But programm dasnt upload anything because in Database 1000 links ready !
Hi control links in DB but not real images.
Real images only 500

And i must upload ALL images again ! its long time
Option - "Skip Images if product alredy has Image" dasnt work

Programm must add links to DB AFTER uploaded image.

Hello Andreas!
As an quick decision:

- Run Store Diagnostics - option - Store-Diagnostics-run.png

In your case don't delete image Uploaded Threads.
If you want to close Store Manager - next time FTP task Queue will ask you : "You have uncompleted FTP tasks - do you want to proceed? " Choose Yes if you want to run next 500 images to upload.

Prorgamm make diagnostic 3 hours ! upload faster when this diagnostic

I think much faster and simple Upload image system

1) Upload image
2) When add link to base

Example 5000 images

1) Save to DB 5000 links - 1 minut
2) Copy 5000 images - 10 hours

If 1 error and if Ftp task is cleared , when

1) I make diagnostic - 3 hours
2) Upload files - 5 hours

If missed 100 images from 5000 - its not normal - wait 3 hours for this 100 images.

Hello, Andres!
Images upload is a time-consuming process.
Store Manager needs to create separate FTP thread for upload.
If you want to speed up Upload process - please try to change FTP settings in the Store Manager.
Please note - in this case, your server should support such number of FTP. threads

See the screenshot.

According to Store Diagnostics - a program should read all nested image folders to test the product pictures location and ability.

That's why so great different among DB post and FTP operation.
