Techno Tip #4: [Ecwid] Adding an Image Gallery to a Product

One of a series of tips related to making the most of your Ecwid eCommerce store.

When building your product portfolio in your Ecwid store, sometimes a single product image isn’t enough.  When you want to implement a multi-image gallery for a particular product, here’s what you need to do:

  • Store the (additional) images you wish to include in a folder on your computer.
  • Navigate to the product in the Ecwid store.
  • Select the “Gallery” tab, then click “upload images”.

  • Use the “Browse” button to navigate to the folder where your images are stored.

NOTE:  You can select multiple images within the same dialog by clicking the “plus” sign – it’ll add another “Browse” button.

  • Once you’ve selected all the images you wish to upload, click the “upload images” button.  Your images will appear in the product’s image “gallery”.

NOTE: You can reorder the images by dragging & dropping if you wish.

  • Just beneath each image is a small box with “- Image name –“ in light gray letters.  Use that box as an image caption.

  • Once you’ve added a caption to each of your gallery images, click “Save” (or “Save & Close” if you’re done editing the product).


If the product was already in the store and you want to include the initial product image in the gallery along with the images you added:

  • Click the product’s “General” tab.

  • Scroll down to the “Product Image”.

  • Right-click the image and save it to where you have the other product images stored.
  • Go back to the “Gallery” and upload the image like you did the others.

NOTE:  Since this is the “main” product image, I’d recommend putting it in the first image position.

That’s it!  Enjoy your expanded product image gallery!
