I can not seem to remove a specific product image in Magento. When I select the remove checkbox and click save and continue, the image is still there. Also no error message is shown.

I thought it might have to do with permissions, but I checked and in the media folder these are all 0777.

I have also seen that there are differences between the number of images in each storefront. The German store has 5, which does not include inane number 6 which I want to remove. The Dutch store has six, which does contain image nr six which I want to remove.


Patrick Steenks,

As you have multiple store and each store have different different images....

So,you need to

select one particular Product change store at product label selecting remove checkbox and click save and continue that is removing all image of product of that particular store and same way need to follow remove other stores products image that particular product.

Import note: remove checkbox only remove image path from db. it do not remove image from folder.

If you want remove all image of products from db and folder then write a script include admin as store and programmatically fetch all image and using unlink function remove the images from folder and write script remove images from db

  • Yes, that is what I tried. However, the images was still there, even after removing it at each storefront. I do see that the filename was quite long (147 characters), maybe that is related. I solved it by removing it from the database. – Patrick Steenks Sep 2 '14 at 8:00

    No problem it is working now. I also have to remove the check with the boxes to use the standard values for each storeview. – Patrick Steenks Sep 2 '14 at 8:35
