I uploaded all the product pictures into the images directory through Dreamweaver.
Instead of typing the image name for each product I went into the database and typed them directly into the image field in the products table but they dont show up on the site, still the no_picture.gif.
I went and typed in the picture name through the product admin and it appeared broken in the preview and then nothing shows up at all in the store view, not even the no_picture.gif.
I re-uploaded the picture through Dreamweaver and then it finally showed up properly in the store.
Can someone explain why this is happening? What else goes on behind the scenes besides adding the picture name to the products table when you use the product admin to add a picture?
