    Well it didn't take me long to find what was wrong.
    I hadn't set the file permissions correct on the /images/cars directory, so it wasn't putting the pic in there which of course then didn't tally up with the med and large, so subdirectories all working fine now. :)

    Heheh... Ok, Dumb question here... too many trees to see the forest..

    How2_Process after FTP uploading.

    I"ve gone through step x step
    Have the 3 directorys (2 additional ones)
    images = already there
    images_MED = new
    images_LRG = new

    Uploaded all 3 sets of images to the appropriate dirs, so all images are up now.

    How do I process them...
    Admin >Catelog >Categories/products >New Products
    and then Browse to my harddrive to "Upload" which I've already done?

    I'm guessing there isn't a way to "Batch" price assign multiple photos (my products) and I need to do each one? but what's the best way of doing all this?

    just keep them on my hard drive and upload as I process each one?? or can I pull them from the server where I've already FTP'd them up...

    Can I use the URL? thought that was a different link. or can I just put in:
    /public_html/shoppe/images
    /public_html/shoppe/images_MED

    and if so, which one do I reference? reg or images _Med or images_LRG

    Not sure if this note should be here or not... but seemed to be a continuation of the great help in setting this all up....
    thanx..

    OK - I'm a little confused, but that's not unusual.

    What are the subdirectories of the image directory ment for? i.e. the microsoft, samples dvd etc. directories that get created with an install. When you edit a product you get prompted for where you want to put the file, I've been using a couple of new directories (myproducts and mycategories) shouldn't I have been doing that?

    If I can do that do I need to create medium and large directories under my new ones?

    Can I get rid of any of the pre-installed image subdirectories are they just there for tidyness?

    The way I've done it seems to work with the images being scaled (i'll do different resolution images later), but I just cant seem to get multiple images displayed for a product (they are named item.jpg, item_01.jpg etc.). And I suspect it's my dodgy understanding of how images are dealt with in ZenCart that is at the root of that problem.

    You can create your own image directories and call them whatever you like BUT you need to remember a couple of things.

    Let's say you have image01.jpg and you want to store it in /myproducts. /myproducts has to live in /images, so it should be /images/myproducts.

    Now, you can have 3 image sizes: small, medium, large. image01.jpg is the small one. The next size up would be image01_MED.jpg (note the change in case! It is case sensitive). You should put that one in /images/medium/myproducts. The largest image would be image01_LRG.jpg and should be in /images/large/myproducts.

    What you'd end up with would be:
    /images/myproducts/image01.jpg
    /images/medium/myproducts/image01_MED.jpg
    /images/large/myproducts/image01_LRG.jpg

    HTH!

    ...and following up on my earlier questions,

    What's the best way of processing all these images..

    FTP up the _MED and _LRG

    Then ADD the new product and BROWSE to upload the small thumbnailed image? One by one.. with each new product as it's added...

    thanx..

    That's what I usually do. I create the folders I need in /images before creating the products.

    A-Ha! - Thank you. I'd been using
    [font=Courier]/images/myproduct/medium/pic_MED.jpg[/font]
    instead of
    [font=Courier]/images/medium/myproduct/pic_MED.jpg[/font]

    As a newbie i did find this confusing. I see from browsing that there are some modules that create the other sized pics with GD (although mogrify gives much better results IMO). Are there plans that something like that gets incorporated into future versions? Along with more user friendly multiple image handling.

    I haven't done anything with downloads, so I'm not really sure what you're asking. Maybe someone who's more familiar with downloads can address that for you.

    Here's the deal with the images as I described them:

    Let's say someone is selling artwork. He/she can upload 3 versions of the piece of art - art.jpg, art_MED.jpg and art_LRG.jpg. When a potential customer is looking at that item, ZC makes the art_LRG.jpg available automatically for "view larger image" so the customer can get a better look.
