Subject Re: Additional Product Images - why are they attached as content
Date Tue, 01 May 2012 13:59:41 GMT
Hi Vaibhav,

The small, medium ... etc images are only differ in their sizes, if you
upload the original image then it will automatically resize the image and
set them in all the product entity. They are not meant to kept the
additional views of the same product.
As you mentioned content used to store images so that user can store number
of additional views for the same product. It should be fixed to keep more
than 4 numbers if not supported, but the basic idea behind keeping the 4
additional views is to keep the four directional views of an image like
most of the sites support this four additional images.
As per my knowledge if you add more product content types to then you will
be able to upload more images wrt any product, work is done like
to demonstrate how it works.

Please take a look and add a new product content type and check, it should
