I have 2 separate installations A and B. I have copied the product images (/media/catalog/product) in A over to B. I have also successfully exported the product information from A to B. The product information and categories shows up as planned but none of the images are showing. If I manually go into each product and reload a given image from my desktop through the admin panel, everything is fine. Is there a way to avoid doing this for each product or can I somehow shortcut this process?
can you just check what is path generating for any specific product image in frontend? You have to check DB that should have same path and image name for that product. Check permission too for transferred images. Run cache flush command and try it again.
Thank you for your response. I ended up using the method shown in this link: https://www.mootpoint.org/blog/magento-bulk-product-import-images/ . I modified the import-product-images.csv file with the fields sku, image, small_image and thumbnail in accordance with the exported .csv file. Everything looks good now.
