Adding Product Images

The Images tab is used to upload and manage images for a single product. You can upload multiple images for the product, and maintain different images for each website or store view. However, if you have many images to manage, you might prefer to import them, rather than upload product images individually. Because Magento does not convert image file formats, any file conversion that is necessary must take place before the files are uploaded or imported.
