    1. Match Code to start of filename with an underscore _
      (i.e.RED-T-CODE_My Red Shirt - Front.jpg)
    2. Match code to whole name
      (i.e the name of image is the whole code)
  7. Images will upload automatically
  8. You can close all tabs or if you want to increase the SEO potential then create individual ALT text for each image explaining what it is.

NOTE:
Images must have the product code in the name of the image to match the product. This is what creates the link. To improve the SEO on images  make sure the name explains what the image is.
