[intro] This collection of Guides are what you need to add Products to your EKM online shop - from images to descriptions and variants, there's a lot to take in but we're here to help you learn how to do it yourself. If you get stuck at any point, simply call our Customer Support Team who will be able to talk you through the processes involved.

Using Pixlr to edit your Product Images

If you are taking photos of your own Products, this Guide shows you how to convert those initial pictures into quality Product Images.

Bulk Uploading Images

If you have a lot of products to add all at once from a spreadsheet using the Import/Export System feature, then it's a lot quicker for you to upload all of your Product Images in one go.
