Using the Media Gallery in Quick Shopping Cart

The Media Gallery manages the images, PDFs, and SWF files you upload to Quick Shopping Cart®. It's available through the Storefront menu and the Product page. Using the Media Gallery, you can display one image per product with the One-Image option, or you can display up to ten images per product with the Multi-Image option.

Note: The Multi-Image feature is only available in Deluxe and Premium Quick Shopping Cart accounts. Using it, you can display up to five images per product in Deluxe accounts and up to ten images per product in Premium accounts.

Additionally, you can search for uploaded files, get links to uploaded files, and remove files.

We have two videos to help you with media galleries:

Use the Media Gallery through the Storefront menu to upload PDFs and SWFs and to get links to uploaded files. Use the Media Gallery through the Product page to assign images to products.

Using the Media Gallery in the Storefront Menu

You can upload images, PDFs, and SWF files using the Media Gallery available through the Storefront menu. Additionally, you can search for your uploaded files and get links to embed or link to uploaded files in fields that accept HTML in Quick Shopping Cart.

Note: If you need to assign an image to a product, use the Media Gallery available through the Product page.

Uploading Images to Your Media Gallery

You can upload up to 100 images at a time directly to your Media Gallery. You also have the option to add a title and searchable keyword tags to each image.

Note: To upload multiple images at once, you need the latest version of Adobe Flash® Player. An alert displays when you click Upload Images if you do not have the latest version of Flash. Click the link on the alert to get the latest version.

Locating Images in Your Media Gallery

Linking to and Embeding PDFs, Flash Files, and/or Images

You can link to or embed PDFs and SWFs from your Media Gallery in fields that accept HTML. Additionally, you can display images from your Media Gallery in fields that accept HTML by using the img src tag.

For more information, see Linking to Your Images in Quick Shopping Cart.

 

Using the Media Gallery in the Product Page

Use the Media Gallery that is available through the Product Page to assign images to a product, decide how many images you want to display per product, and upload product images.

Note: If you need to upload a PDF or SWF file, or link and/or embed content from the Media Gallery into an HTML field, use the Media Gallery available through the Storefront menu.

Assigning Images to a Product

You can assign different images to display with each product. On a product's Media Gallery page, you can assign images to the product using either the One-Image or the Multi-Image option. There are three locations where product images display: Thumbnail, Standard, and Zoom.

Thumbnail
Displays the thumbnail image next to the product on your Products page and also when the product is presented as a Featured Item. Click the arrow in the Thumbnail setting section to set the thumbnail Display Options as Scale to fit or Full size.
- Scale to fit - Displays a 60x60 version of the image.
- Full size - Displays a full-size version of the image. The size that the image displays on the storefront is affected by the containing element. For example, if the storefront section in which the image displays has a maximum size of 256x256 pixels, the original image will be constrained to fit into that 256x256 box.

Note: When the Category Page Style 3 is selected, the Standard Image (175x175) is used if the product is in One-Image mode; if the product is in Multi-Image mode, a 175x175 version of the Thumbnail is used.

Standard
Displays the image no larger than 175x175 pixels on the product detail page.
Zoom
Displays the full-size image in a new window when the Standard image is clicked.

Note: The system does not automatically increase the displayed size of the image. To effectively use the Zoom feature, you must upload a larger version of the image.

Previously, you were required to have at least one image associated with each product. You now have the option to not assign any images to a product.
