E-commerce variant images alt text - PRO TIP (HEAD'S UP)

OK, this is probably more “common sense tip” than “pro tip”, but I was caught napping and wanted to share this, so others like me don’t make the same mistake…

When adding more images under Media for your Products in e-Commerce, add the Alt Text to those images BEFORE, I repeat BEFORE you create variants (sizes, colours etc.). This way the alt text is set for those images under each variant.
If you create variants first, without adding alt-text, you’ll end up having to add the alt-text one by one. To hundreds of images!

OK, I’m off to finish adding the alt-text… only 120 images to go…

FML!

Export the CSV, add the alt text to the relevant field (you can use an expression for the variants). Import the new CSV. Save yourself hours. Best wishes.

I’ve done half manually. Lifesaver!
