Add Images Product Gallery

The below code reads the image URLs from the CSV and assigned the images to the existing products.

function importAddImages($prodDatas, $_objectManager, $prdbasepath, $newProductIds) {

    foreach($prodDatas as $prodData) {

        if(isset($newProductIds[$prodData[2]])) {
            /* Get new product Id*/
            $newProdId = $newProductIds[$prodData[2]];
            echo 'New Product Id '.$newProdId.' - '.$prodData[2].PHP_EOL;
            $imgs = explode('|',$prodData[10]);
            if(sizeof($imgs) > 1) {
                /* Assign additional images to existing products */
                $product = $_objectManager->create('Magento\Catalog\Model\Product')->load($newProdId);
                $productRepository = $_objectManager->create('Magento\Catalog\Api\ProductRepositoryInterface');

                for ( $i=1; $i << sizeof($imgs); $i++ ) {
                    echo 'Add Images :' . $prdbasepath.basename(trim($imgs[$i])) . PHP_EOL;
                    $image_directory = $prdbasepath.'data'.DS.basename(trim($imgs[$i]));

                    if (file_exists($image_directory) && getimagesize($image_directory)) {

                        echo 'File exists'.PHP_EOL;
                        $product->addImageToMediaGallery($image_directory, array('image', 'small_image', 'thumbnail'), false, false);

Initialise Object Manager and set file path

As the first step initialize object manager and set the file path.


use \Magento\Framework\App\Bootstrap;

$bootstrap = Bootstrap::create(BP, $_SERVER);
$_objectManager = $bootstrap->getObjectManager();
$app_state = $_objectManager->get('\Magento\Framework\App\State');
$filespath = $_objectManager->get('\Magento\Framework\Filesystem');
$prdbasepath = $filespath->getDirectoryWrite(\Magento\Framework\App\Filesystem\DirectoryList::MEDIA)->getAbsolutePath();
