Tips

Loading images
I'm not sure how everyone else prepares their image for magento, but I usually reduce them to 600x450 for landscape and flip the dims for portrait in photoshop express and then save it using save for web under the file menu. Using this process I have not run into any issues.

Other suggestion were to populate image attributes with product name, description, and sku.

Next Meeting

We agreed that we'd to meet in April, so send in your ideas for discussion topics.

Feel free to comment and add anything I missed.

Cheers,

Steve

Here are some of the issues with imaging that others have run into with 1.6 and other versions according to a quick google search

http://www.google.com...­ .

The dull uploader does not work for some of us. I have found work arounds for the upload issue but it seems to be a multiversion issue.

Thank you very much for summarizing the above information. I really appreciate it. The meeting was very informative and I will see everyone in April.

Olivia I would recommend you upgrade to 1.6.2. 1.6 is not very stable.. I think everyone seems to enjoy the discussion so I might make a meetup for discussions only.
