As you know, in current magento version, image of associated products could not be derived from the configurable product, thus we had to manually upload the product image again. Imagine that we are going to create hundreds or thousands simple products. This is very time consuming.
My question, is there any extension or good solution for this issue? Like say, while creating associate product, there an option for us to tick if we want to use configurable product image for the new associate product. Then if choosing yes follow by clicking on save button, system would store the same image path (record) into database for the new associated product.
Thank you for your kind attention.
