I am having problems with CS-Cart duplicating and renaming my product images when they're used for multiple products.


Example: I use the same product image for 5 different products. When we import our images for our products CS-Cart will then create a copy and add a alpha numeric code to the end of the file name so then we have 5 of the same image. 1 original image and 4 others with a alpha numeric code added to the url string.



Example of what the file names look like when they're duplicated & renamed:








Unfortunately it's not just five products being effected.  This same occurrence happens for every product (over 200 products) each with 3 or more products, so it's really started to pile up in the directory and makes it more difficult to manage the images.


This also can't be good for SEO.  GTMetrix even suggests serving resources from a consistent URL. 


How can I stop this from happening?
