Just echoing what I posted in the support forums, it would be very useful to be able to apply a particular product with variations/prices to an image based on Gallery or Album name for example. When the Add-To-Cart button is pressed for the variation in question, to have the name of the picture file or perhaps the ALT name to be incorporated into the cart results.
This way the products section is kept more tidy. In my case I’ve got hundreds of pictures to upload into galleries from a photo shoot of a sporting event. Parents will be logging on to purchase their child’s team picture, wallet sizes, action shots, etc. and thinking of creating hundreds of products doesn’t sound fun haha!
Hopefully you can incorporate this type of functionality. I believe it would be fairly unique.
@amin007, thank you! In my case I’m grossly watermarking all of the pics in question and reducing the resolution to a point of making the pics reasonably unusable.
When will we see this option made available? It would also be nice to be able to apply specific variations/prices to group of pictures, say within a particular gallery or based on categories, that way the process is automated. So for example, as soon as I upload a set of pictures within a particular category (based on the post category) or perhaps within a particular Album, the formatting of the Add to Cart options are automatically displayed if a box is checkmarked. Just an idea that would make the process much more streamlined, especially for those selling more than just a few pics.
Again, thanks for the response.
This is only a test site, but it gives you an idea of what I’m trying to accomplish: http://testsite.utopiastudios.net/galleries/flowers
The product is the same for all photos, with the only difference being the photo itself as a reference from Nextgen. So the photo is not listed in eStore at all. Perhaps there’s a way to pull the info from Nextgen and bring it into the cart along with the Product and variation?
That would be very cool!
Thank you Ivy! That’s a great resource. I have hundreds of pictures… from what I understand I would need to create hundreds of products? Can’t I just create, for example, a product called “Photo Print” and have variations such as 4×6, 5×7, 8×10, etc. all with different prices and then apply that to a picture in NextGen?
Otherwise this could be a little too tedious
Let me know if you think that’s possible with a tweak.
