How do I upload images?
For a walk through on uploading images, click here!

You can easily upload images into DOmedia that can later be associated with your inventory.  To do so, navigate to the Image Gallery, accessed under the Media Profiles menu in the top navigation bar.


 
To add an image, use the 'Choose Files' button to find the image on your local hard drive, then click 'Upload'.  DOmedia will automatically create thumbnails of the appropriate size for our site.  You may upload BMP, GIF, JPG, JPEG, PNG files, or a ZIP file containing those image types (50mb limit).




Once you have added your images to the Image Gallery, there are two ways you can view your images.

How do I associate images with my inventory?
There are two ways to associate images with your inventory.  You can associate an image to one piece of inventory at a time or associate images to your inventory in bulk using our Image Association tool.

1) Now that your images are in the Image Gallery, you can associate them to the related assets one by one using this method.  To do so, navigate back to your inventory by clicking 'Inventory Management'.



If needed, click on 'browse / search inventory', and then click 'Edit' next to the desired asset.



Click on the 'Images' tab at the top.



Now you can scroll down until you see the image of that piece of inventory, click the 'Associated'  or checkbox, scroll down to the bottom of the page, and then click 'update images' to associate that picture with the asset.



2) For a walk through on using our bulk Image Association tool, click here!

Before you'll be able to associate your images to your inventory using our Image Association tool, you will need to download a spreadsheet of the filenames for the images in your Image Gallery.  To do so, navigate to the Image Gallery page and click 'Download Filenames'.



The download will look similar to the example shown below.



Next, to associate images with your inventory, click on 'Image Association' in the bar located near the top of the Image Gallery page or click on 'Image Association' under the Media Profiles menu in the top navigation bar.





From the Image Association page, you will first want to click 'Download' to download a spreadsheet of your assets.



The download will look similar to the example shown below.



Once you have the asset image association file open in Excel or another spreadsheet application, you can reference the image gallery filenames spreadsheet you downloaded earlier and enter the appropriate image filename next to the related inventory number.  Once you have all the the image filenames added for your inventory, your spreadsheet should look similar to the example shown below.



You can now navigate back to the Image Association page, choose that file, and click 'Upload' to associate those images with assets in DO.



Note: To change or remove an image that is associated with an asset, download the Asset Image Association file again, and paste the new image filename over the existing image filename, or delete the existing filename altogether.  Once you have made the needed changes, just choose the file and upload it on the Image Association page!

A green message will always let you know the status of your changes (how many associated, skipped, or failed) for the Bulk Asset Association you submitted.
