The actual way to upload pictures to the products is a PITA. 

a lot of libraries are available now to do this and this is used almost everywhere already.

It could be super useful, just drag and drop the pics, easy and fast. 

 

in fact, redactor have html uploader, that would be super useful to upload more pictures easily in the description. but it seems this feature is disabled..

html5 works great in mobile devices, is very easy upload pictures. 

please consider implement this. (product pictures and make it work also in redactor to post pictures easily to in the description)

 

Thanks.

@CS-Cart developers. do you think that this will be considered someday?

the actual method to upload pictures is simply old, difficult and horrible.

Not speaking about actual technology behind feature, but as told earlier in some other thread, most modern places like ebay, photobucket, dropbox allow adding all pictures in bulk, not one by one..

Yes, almost everywhere is possible upload pics in bulk. uploading one by one is very annoying and difficult.

cs-cart image handling is very custom driven and completely tailored around their existing UI of file/server/url.  All of the functions expect to look for their specific naming conventions for the _FILES data and would take considerable refactoring to use a different method.

 

How would you deal with files that are uploaded to the server using an html 5 type widget?

Yes, an awful, outdated and difficult UI.

Duh. the same bla bla bla with the other suggestion (Responsive ACP) The future of a product in the hands of developers like you looks promising. "oh, that's already very customized and works fine, let's use it forever" awesome.

All competitors already know exactly how to do that. oh, wait, probably they change things in the code!! they must be wrong!! [i.off]

It seems is more fun create and fix bugs forever than consider improve things. This is my last suggestion. Certainly make suggestions here is just a waste of time.

Actually this functionality (partly) is already in cs-cart but its not available for product details page.

 

File Manager

admin.php?dispatch=file_editor.manage

 

when uploading you can select multiple images and they all are uploaded at once..
