The first question - image values are the filenames of your images. You should have all you images in the media/import directory. Labels can be used to either organise them, or depending on your theme can be used for accessibility/seo (ie alt tags).

Second question. You would include three columns, image, small_image, and thumbnail. You can have the same image in all three columns, you would do that if you only had 1 image for a product. You can also specify whether the base image is excluded from any additional media gallery or not. Use a - (minus) in front of any image to exclude it from the additional images gallery in your template.

Third Question: Yes -> http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/magmi/index.php?title=Image_attributes_processor#Remote_image_support

  • I know you've asked a few Magmi questions Joey. Once you get the hang of it you'll find the docs (which at first seem quite difficult to follow imo) are actually really comprehensive and excellent. As is Magmi itself, you will get used to it!

  • If I was you I would pull these remote images down locally first and therefore remove all the potential problems associated with that aspect from the equation: stackoverflow.com/questions/724391/…
