How can I Upload External Images to my FTP?

You can Upload External Images for Products using Import Wizard. In order to do it you need to make sure that:

  1. You have set up your FTP connection correctly.
  2. You have specified correct path to your Images folder at your FTP (It must be default Shopping cart Images folder). Please note: Some of Store Managers wants to specifying only base Directory (Store Root).
  3. You have checked Upload Images function during Import.
  4. You have prepared .CSV or .txt file where you have column with correct Image URLs for each Product and you have Images with Identical names with Images in folder on your PC.
  5. You have assigned Column with Image names from your .CSV or .txt with database field.
  6. You have checked Is External function for Product Image field.
  7. After Import Store Manager will Upload your Images to FTP automatically and you will be able to see Images in product page.

    Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

    Okay, but when import product from html in xml file and generate the xml to csv, and have picture separator (;), then when uploading the images whit ftp have problem:
    The prestashopmanager try to download the pictures from the original link without separatos eg.: http://xxxx.com/picture1jpghttp://xxx.com/picture2.jpg
    this goes to fault, any 401 error, because that pictures are unavailable, because the links are wrong! (hoever in the xml to csv conversion is okay, and have separators between the http pictures)
    The links in the generated csv file are: http://xxxx.com/picture1jpg;http://xxx.com/picture2.jpg
    By the ftp task the links are: http://xxxx.com/picture1jpghttp://xxx.com/picture2.jpg
    Can You help me, how can resolve this problem?
    (sorry my bad english)
