I have some 2000 products in a .csv file to upload on my website. Under small and big image tags i have image urls. I don't have images in my computer. How to upload those image urls on my website??
Thanks in Advance
If you put no URL in the CSV file, just the filename itself, then place all your images into the /avactis-images directory.
This is an example CSV file for your reference if you don't already have it http://docs.avactis....port-sample.csv

I dont have Images. Images are on wholesaler's website and he gave me a datafeed to upload on my website with image urls. So I put www.domain.com/images/small_image.jpg under ProductSmallImage. I don't have any images to put in image directory.
You need to get them into your Avactis database I believe, so you could download them using a program such as FlashGet http://www.flashget.com. In that program under Tools>Site Explorer and grab all the files in their directory and then place them in /avactis-images. You could then strip their domain off the CSV file so that it just leaves the image file name behind.

However, there's an alternative! You can import these URLs as-is to, for example, ProductImageAltText attribute and then, in product-info and product-list-item templates, replace ProductLargeImageSrc() tag with ProductImageAltText() tag. It's like you just don't use Avactis' built-in image handling at all.

What a great Idea! I also found a Free software, which can extract images from the list of urls. It is http://www.httrack.c...2/en/index.html
Earlier I found some software which only could extract one image at a time, but above software can extract hundreads of images out of list of urls.
Thanks David and Technology Ideas for ur help
