TradeGecko currently saves images at the variant level, where each variant has an associated image(s) that are privately assigned and are not available for use with other variants.
After choosing to manage images at the product level, images are saved to the product, rather than to each individual variant, then can be attached to multiple variants within that product.
Due to the previous requirement of uploaded images directly to each variant, if you needed to upload the same image to multiple variants, choosing to manage variants at the product level will mean that each duplicate image will be moved to the product level.
Future releases will allow you to manage images at the product level, allowing you to delete images attached to multiple variants.
If you are experiencing any issues please contact us.
To manage variant images go to Inventory > Variants > Variant name > Images. From here you can view currently attached images, or choose to attach more images to the variant.
When uploading images to your variants, note the image will be available to attach to all other variants under that particular product.
From the main image screen you can also choose to detach images from the current variant. To detach images, click to select the image (also works with multiple selections), then click the Detach Images option.
Un-assigning an image from the variant does not delete it from the product. It just removes it from the variant.
