Using remote images but they still show up in my media library

  • September 30, 2017 at 6:22 am #4549

    Hi all,

    I am having an issue with the remote images. In my understanding, the images should remain entirely on Amazon.

    However, I downloaded products and the images show up in my media library.

    Does anyone have a solution for that? I am having trouble finding one.

    Hi Jen,

    I too am facing a similar issue and mentioned to Alex. He’s told me that it could be due to a version issue, make sure you’re running the latest version. One of the things I did to make sure that the remote images is actually work is by simply doing an inspect on the images in google chrome and it does show the cdn amazon image location and not a local image link. One of the things Alex mentioned as well is to delete those images so as long they’re not attached to any of the product pages. I haven’t done this yet as my site isn’t live yet and will do so before launching. So you’re not along in this Jen. I’ll report back if I find out exactly why this is occurring. 🙂

    I wouldn’t worry about this. As Tony said if you actually check your images on the pages you’ll see they are being loaded from Amazon..

    Good luck with your sites.
