Delivery of Photography and Data

Folder Structure

It is best practice to create a folder for all delivered data (“Batch Folder”). The Batch Folder will include SKU Folders and the Batch Data.

Each SKU will have its own folder (“SKU Folder”) in the Batch Folder. The SKU folder must be named after your SKU. This will be the ProductID which is used to call the frame on your website. An example is “A50375418601”. Note that the SKU must match the values in the Batch Data Spreadsheet. Only alphanumeric characters (letters and numbers) or dashes ("-") are allowed. Please avoid using spaces and all other special characters (i.e. !, _, #, etc.).

Photography for each SKU must be inside the SKU Folder

File names for the photography must be consistent across SKUs and Angles. Also note that the number of photos for each SKU must be the same. Example photo names:

  • A50375418601_1
  • A50375418601_2
  • A50375418601_3

Delivery

It is common for Clients to deliver the Batch Folder via a service like Box, Dropbox, FTP, and WeTransfer.
