This guide will provide you with an overview of the specific requirements and details of the media assets associated with your catalog. Check out the below video for an introduction Catalog Tile and Product images. The Technical Specifications for each are also included in this article. 


Media Assets fall into the following categories with various components:


Primary/Hero Images

Primary images (Hero Images) are a requirement for every product/style. They are displayed site-wide.




If a Primary Image does not exist for a product, a generic ‘Image Not Available’ graphic is substituted until a product image is uploaded.




Alternate Images

Alternate Images display different views of the product/style (i.e. front, back, on model) and are optional


A “View Alternates” link displays on the product detail page when Alternate Images are available.
