DEAR allows you to upload product photos in bulk via CSV file, using links to your image hosting provider.  


NOTE: Google Drive images were previously supported, however, changes in Google Drive API have stopped this functionality for now. DEAR development team will be examining this area to see if the function can be returned.

In this example, we will use Dropbox as the image host. You will need to export the Images & Attachments CSV file (Inventory → Products → Export → Images & Attachments).

  1. Generate a link of the image file from Dropbox. 
    • NOTE: This is not a direct link to the image file itself, but rather to an interstitial page that frames the image and gives you options for downloading the file, etc. Not embeddable at all. But this will be fixed in the next step!
  2. After you copy the public Dropbox link to your clipboard, just change ?dl=0 to ?raw=1 at the end of the URL. This will change the link to one that will work. The link should look like this: https://www.dropbox.com/s/mn5smjgwtlbndqu/dropbox-dropdown.png?raw=1
    • If using a different hosting provider for your images, please check what URL you should use with your hosting provider to access it publicly i.e. any user can access image using url with out log in to hosting provided.
  3. Enter the image URL and file names into the downloaded Images & Attachments CSV template.
  4. Click Inventory → Products → Import → Images & Attachments to upload the CSV file back into DEAR and update your product images.
