Working with Additional Images

Enabling, disabling and troubleshooting this feature

How do I enable the additional images feature?

Go to Admin > Catalog > Product Types, then selecting Product - General (or whatever your product type is), then clicking Edit Layout and setting Show Additional Images to 1.

Then add additional images for your products, following the naming conventions set out in Working with Additional Images.

How do I disable the additional images feature?

Go to Admin > Catalog > Product Types, then selecting Product - General (or whatever your product type is), then clicking Edit Layout and setting Show Additional Images to 0.

Why do I see images for other products on my product pages?

The additional images feature is causing this because of misconfigured image filenames.

You have two options:

a) rename your images so they don’t share a common filename.  Right now since you have one product with “abc.jpg” as the name, and another product with “abcde.jpg” as the name, both images will show for the “abc.jpg” product, because “abc” is common to both, and “abc” is the full filename of the main image of one of the products. 

This is explained further in Image Filename Conventions.

b) or turn off all extra-image functionality by following the directions above to disable additional images.
