Magento Dataflow is a data exchange framework that can be used by both merchants and developers. The basic Dataflow tool includes preconfigured profiles that make it easy to import and export product and customer data. The profiles can be used as they are, or be modified to meet your needs. You can create additional profiles for operations that are performed on a regular basis. For more sophisticated applications, Advanced Profiles can be defined in XML to perform custom data exchange operations.

The following instructions show how to use Dataflow profiles to export all product data, and import new product images.
