How to add photos to products
Go to 'Products'> Click on the product > click on 'Images'
You can upload a new image in two ways:
Select a photo from your disk by clicking on 'Upload images' or drag and drop them in the designated field.
You can also add photos when you create a new product.
Setting the order of the displayed images and selecting the main image.
Set the order of displayed images
In the 'Images' tab, when editing the product, click on the top left corner of the image and drag to the right place.
In the 'Images' tab, select which image you want to see as the main image.
Assigning a photo to a product variant
Click on the product you want to edit > Go to the Variants tab > Click on edit.
Then click on the arrow next to the photo and select the one that applies to this variant.
Adding ALT attribute to images
Click on the product you want to edit > Click on 'Images' > Click on the 3 dots within the photo you want to edit > click Edit. Change the Image ALT and click on 'Save changes'.
If you want to set the global ALT parameter for all images (which don't have an individual ALT), you can do this under the 'Marketing' section > SEO> Images SEO.
Why do my photos change colour when I add them to Shoplo?
If your photos change colour when displayed in the browser, they probably are in the wrong colour space. Change it to sRGB to solve this issue.
1) Open the photo in Adobe Photoshop
2) Select Edit -> Convert to profile ...
3) Under 'Destination Space' add the following profile: sRGB ICE61966-2.1.
4) Save the photo.
And it's ready :)
Adding pictures in product descriptions
You can also add photos to product descriptions. Remember that they will appear in the files section. For this reason, each photo you add to your product description should have a different name. Otherwise, they will be overwritten.
