How to Export a Group of Assets
1) Click on the export tab
2) Click on the Export Assets tab
3) You have the option name your export, and whether you would like an on-demand export or to schedule the export. On-demand exports can be exported to an FTP location or downloaded via Zip file to your computer.
4) Select the SKUs of the assets that you would like to export. This requires that assets to be linked to those SKUs.
5) Choose which assets you want to export:
- All Assets, Master Assets, or Alternative Assets
- All Labels, or filter on asset labels (ex: only “Default” labeled assets)
- All file types, or a filter on file type (ex: only .jpg or only .mp3)
6) Image updated/added within allows you to select only assets that have been updated in a certain period of time. If you want all images to be considered, select “All Dates”
7) Name of files allows you to assign the file name for the assets you are exporting. If you leave as is, they will keep their original file name. However, you can choose to overwrite these names with the data from any field in PFL. (ex: if all images need to be renamed to ProductName.jpg, you can set that here).
8) Image Output Size(s) allows you to resize images on export. Exported images will be resized such that the longest side of the image is no longer than the pixel size specified, and aspect ratio will remain intact. We will not resize images to be larger than the original image. Resized images can be set to a separate subfolder, where all other assets can be directed elsewhere. The resize tool will only consider .jpg and .png files. It will ignore all others.
9) If you are exporting to an FTP or scheduling the export for a later day/time, you will also need to define your output folder and schedule settings.
10) Once all settings have been configured, click “Save & Run”
