Naming Zen Cart Images



Zen Cart follows a naming method for adding additional images and having zen cart automatically recognize them. Your main image name is considered the base name.

example:

nikoncamera.jpg

nikoncamera is the base name.

To name the zen cart additional images you would add an underscore to the base name with an additional identifying name

example:

nikoncamera_back.jpg
nikoncamera_side.jpg

if you want your additional images to display in a particular order you could name them ending with numbers or letters

example:

nikoncamera_1.jpg
nikoncamera_2.jpg

or

nikoncamera_a.jpg
nikoncamera_b.jpg

However if you had other nikon cameras to list, you will want to give each of the main images more distinctive base names to avoid image display problems across numerous listings, with images from other listings showing on the wrong product pages.

These display problems would occure if you name your other camera images as such

example:

nikoncamera_model3.jpg - base image
nikoncamera_model3_1.jpg - additional image
nikoncamera_model3_2.jpg - additional image

Here you see the model 3 camera has the same base name, nikonCamera, as in our first examples.

In conclusion, name your base image:

example base:

jadering.jpg


example additional images:

jadering_1.jpg
jadering_2.jpg

And be sure to give images of similar products more distinctive base names.
