Customize product image file names

Modified on Tue, 29 Aug 2023 at 08:32 AM

Product images are valuable assets. Having informative, user-friendly, and search-engine-friendly image file names makes these assets' value even higher. For these purposes, Valigara sets an automation for each product image file name. Valigara Each handles each image individually, according to its position in the product.

The file name 44301-pendant-vintage-bronze-diamond-e1513-2.jpg was generated automatically:

To customize product image titles:

Go to Global settings -> Image settings -> Product images block

  • Mark "Customize Image names" checkbox
  • Click "+" button

    -> Define Title template for "Image 1" by "Select Template" dropdown
    -> Define Title template for "Image 2" by "Select Template" dropdown
    -> Define Title template for "Image 3" by "Select Template" dropdown

Image 1,2,3 is the image position in the product.

  • "Select Template" dropdown will show the list of your Title templates
    It will define the mask for the image title (including the "-")
  • ".jpg" extension will be added automatically

Please note:

  • English chars only, numbers, and "-". 
  • Maximum file name length - 200 chars
  • Non-allowed file name chars are removed automatically

  • If the generated image name is not unique - product ID & incremental value will be added to the end

  • If templates exist only for Images 1, 2, and 3,  and there are 5 images in the product, titles for images 4 and 5 will be generated automatically, according to the pre-set system templates

  • Use Customize image names If your clients communicate with you by manually sending product images (on WhatsApp, etc.)

some SEO 

  • Title templates are very effective for changing image ALT tags and titles
  • Customize image names improve products visibility in search engines
