Managing WooCommerce Product Images & Galleries
July 25, 2018
Table of Contents
From the WordPress Dashboard, use the navigation menu to move to Products -> All Products.
Select the product that you want to edit from the list of all products.
On the bottom of the right sidebar, you will find the Product Image and Product Gallery areas.
To edit the contents of these areas, simply click on them and a new dialogue box will appear so that you can search your Media Library for images or upload new images.
Note that there can only be one product image selected – this is the image that will appear in the product catalog, will be shown first on the specific product page, and will be used as a thumbnail elsewhere in the site.
If you have multiple images to add to your gallery, you can select all of them from the library rather than adding them one at a time by holding down the CTRL key and clicking on each image. You’ll see that each selected image is designated with a check mark in the upper right corner.
You can change the order in which images are displayed in the product gallery by clicking and dragging them into the desired order.
If you need to change the size of images that appear in your catalog, product pages, or thumbnails you can do so from the WooCommerce -> Settings page. Just look on the Products tab and click on the Display sub-menu.
As always, when working with images on the web you’ll want to make sure that your images are optimized. Large image file sizes can create high loading times on your web pages, so use a tool like Optimizilla to keep file sizes low.
Your team is about to get a whole lot mightier.
