Change Sort Order of Your OpenCart Product Images

The product page in an ecommerce website is one of the most important pages in terms of customer conversion. A well thought-out and designed page helps customers be sure that this item is exactly what they were looking for and eventually complete purchase. What is the first thing that grabs attention when viewing any products at any webshop? Definitely, this will be images. They are the best means to convey visual message to shopper.


In OpenCart you can add main products images as well as additional pictures to show your product from each angle. By default, when you add a few extra images to OpenCart product, the first one you add is shown at the end of gallery list at the front-end. What if you need images to be visible in the way you like?


Store Manager for OpenCart gives you the flexibility to specify sequence in which your additional images will display at product page. This way, you might add additional emphasis, displaying most relevant images first. It is possible to rearrange pictures and make them shown in the order you want. Using the application you can organize extra pictures for each products of your catalog individually as well as set images position while their massive upload.


Manual OpenCart Images Rotation

Each product image has something called a "sort order," which controls the position of picture display at product page. If sort order is 0 for each image, the pictures by default are displayed in the following way: the latest added image is the first one in the gallery.

Store Manager for OpenCart allows you to set order of product images from the single location, right in the lower grid, without the need to open each product via edit form. Thus, moving through products list you will be able to see product pictures and their sort order.

In the tab ‘Image’ you will see main image and also can add or modify OpenCart extra images. To rearrange pictures representation at the front-end, in the column “Sort order” type in numbers that will correspond to image position at product page.


Set Sort Order for New Product Images While Import

Arranging photos in different order is possible for numerous products in one go, if you do it via import procedure, when adding pictures to products. For that in the file you need to have at least 3 columns:

  • the one with unique product identifier (any of these: Model, SKU, UPC, EAN, product ID, JAN etc)
  • column with image names, separated by delimiter symbol for multiple values in one column, for example pipe
  • the third column should contain numbers denoting position of images. They should also be divided by separator symbol.
TIP: Value of image sort order indicated is associated to image name in column with images.

After file preparations you can run import wizard of Store Manager for OpenCart and upload the file with images and their position.
