    Max number of images that can added using media picker

    Hi

    Does anyone know what the maximum number of images the multimedia picker can select?

    I'm about to start a project and the client has 250 images of different colours that a product can be, so I need to use the media picker so the client can pick the colours for each product.

    So for example:

    Product 1 may have 150 different colours

    Product 2 may have 250 different colours

    Thanks

    George

    Hi George,

    Have you considered just picking a media folder and then just outputting every image below. Seems like it would be an easier editor journey rather than having to upload and pick each one.

    Hi Steve

    Thanks for the reply, I did think of that, but I would need to create multiple folders as each product has a different number of colour images, as the client seems to have limited storage I was thinking upload all images and they can pick the colours for each product.

    Regards

    George

    Hey George,

    Please create folder in media against product programitically when creating a product,then it will solve the issue ? Make sense? 😊

    Hi Dhanesh

    Don't think that will work, the client has 1,000 products, each product can have between 5 and 300 image colours.

    If I upload all 300 colours in one go, then I'm only storing 300 images for the colours and the client can pick which colours for each product.

    If for example, I create a folder for each product and the product has 10 colours, then I'm having to store 10,000 images.

    The way I have decided to proceed is to create a new docType and under that add each colour image with colour code.

    Then I'm going to use nested content in the product docType and use a content picker so that the client can select the colours for the product.

    It should work :) hopefully

    Regards

    George

    If the question is, is there a limit, then no.

    But if the same images can relate to multiple products, you could add a tag to the images and tag them in each product.

    But really I don't see that being any easier to manage.

    Hi Richard

    Thanks for the reply, each product can have the same image colour, it's just trying to work out the best way to add each colour to the product.

    Only found out this morning about the image product code, that's why I have decided to go with the content picker.

    I think that is my best option; it will also allow the client to be able to search for the colour via product code etc.

    Regards

    George

    Sounds like a better idea.
