Magento import product images not showing up (solved)

Magento CMS website logoI imported products with the standard product import functionality System -> Import/Export -> Import

The products imported well but images didn’t. After some investigation we found out that it was due to missing columns in the cvs file. In my case we imported a single image per product.

The columns you need to import a single image are:

  • image -> /image_name.jpg which needs to be stored in folder media/import (don’t forget the “/” before the image_name).
  • image_label -> text
  • small_image -> /image_name.jpg
  • small_image_label-> text
  • thumbnail -> /image_name.jpg
  • thumbnail_label -> text
  • gallery -> empty
  • media_gallery -> empty
  • _media_image -> /image_name.jpg
  • _media_lable -> text (lable => this is not a typo!)
  • _media_attribute_id -> export one product and verify this id, for example “88”
  • _media_is_disabled -> value = 0
  • _media_position -> value = 1
