Does anyone know if there is a way to set the order of the images being imported in the additional_images column when running a CSV import?

It's worth noting that 3 of the 5 product images already exist in the system. When running some tests it seems that Magento 2 doesn't import the images in the order that they appear in the CSV file. See below:



Images C and D currently do not exist in the system.

After running a successful import the images appear in the following order:

  1. PROD1-C.jpg
  2. PROD1.jpg
  3. PROD1-D.jpg
  4. PROD1-A.jpg
  5. PROD1-B.jpg

you can change images order with the third-party tool, having even only 3 columns in the file (if it's and update) - product ID, column with images and column with images position.
