Within Creative Force, there are two different ways that you can import an image without waiting for production to start. You can use the image URLs and import them in as values for either the Product Image property, Color Reference Url property and Product Display Image property.
Where to find
Both of these properties are the system’s reserved properties which means that you cannot edit them. These properties are ‘free text’ type so you can fill in the URLs.
Product Display Image and Color Reference URL are in the product properties.
Sample Display Image is in the sample properties.
How to add the URLs
The URLs can be added at the same time as when the products are imported. The URLs can be updated after the products are imported into the system and the display image will be updated as well. The new image(s) will be added to the Display image pool.
After importing the product image URL, you can see the image upon scanning the product in Kelvin even though the product is still in Backlog.
In Kelvin, we are returning an image in priority top-down

Color Reference Image Url
After importing the Color Reference Image URL, you will see the image under Color Reference in the product slide-in.
The URLs should be public for 24 hours for Creative Force to scan them in.
The supported file types can be found here.
URL length must be less than 2048 characters and the file size must be smaller than 200MB
To import multiple image files, you can use multiple URLs but they must be separated with a “|” delimiter in between.
