How to Optimize Store Diagnostics for Getting Instant Images Listings?

PrestaShop images diagnostics is the unique instrument that allows troubleshooting your store for issues with product pictures.

The Most Common PrestaShop Images Problems

  • missing product images (the images that do not physically exist on your server, but their image records are present in your database). This way you will have a broken image at the front-end.

  • Product Without Images Backend

  • items without photos (products that have no images added). ‘Image not found’ is common trouble that concerns all store owners especially if you add products in bulk.

  • Missing PrestaShop Product Images Backend

  • pictures that are not linked to any products (images uploaded to FTP, but not assigned to any of the goods at your shop). They simply occupy space on your server.

In case you have thousands of products, it is much more convenient to automatically diagnose the state of images, getting the full list of pictures that correspond to above-mentioned criteria, rather than viewing each item one-by-one.
