Will Strohl made a great start for a more robust module for Hotcakes to process images for import
https://github.com/Hotca...erce/ProcessImagesModule 

We have a need for this image processor to prepare image sizes, etc for multiple images for a product beyond the "main image" for that product. We will post notes and updates here if we get into it as an enhancement.

Thanks for posting this, Ryan.

If anyone wants to help iterate on this module in any way, please feel free. 🙂

By the way, it's also a great code sample on how to do numerous things in DNN. Enjoy!

We're going through it now to see about using the Hotcakes process for multiple additional product images into the process that's currently done in this for the main product picture

We've made good progress and have a version of this module running locally and with a client installation. Depending on the content in the import spreadsheet, it can
- import and process main images for multiple products
- import and process additional images for multiple products
- import/update other product information fields which are not included in the core hotcakes product import spreadsheet

It is working well for the immediate needs of the client and we continue to test it. If anyone needs similar, please let me know and we can test it further with you. Otherwise, once we've wrapped up a bit, we will post it for general use by the community.

Depending on what the updates are, this may be a feature addition as a Pull Request.

Hi All,

Just reading through this thread and read this part (below), How can I achieve this? I was able to install the module and able to process main images, but how would one import & process additional images?

You'll find information about this at the bottom of the following documentation article.

Hi Will

The article you have linked only refers to the main product image import. What we are trying to achieve here is the import of additional images to a product. Ultimately what we want is to have 3 or product images loaded to the same product and would like to be able to achieve this via the import sheet.

It would appear from this thread that yourself and MooreCreative have done some work down this road already...

Ah... The existing import feature is currently only meant primarily for initially populating your catalog, not bulk uploads yet. That could potentially change in the future. It would require an issue get created in GitHub first. 🙂

In the meantime, you can build something unique to your store and using the samples in this forum thread should get you at least 80-90% of the way there.
