Import product images from external url in magento 1.7.x and above

Let’s say we have a CSV file with an extra field: external_image_url
Simply follow below steps to import product images from external url in Magento 1.7.x and above.

1. Copy app/code/core/Mage/Catalog/Model/Convert/Adapter/Product.php to the local code pool so that new path looks like:
app/code/local/Mage/Catalog/Model/Convert/Adapter/Product.php

2. Open the Product.php from local code pool and search for the following code:

And replace it with following code:

*Please note- You must create directory “import” with 777 permission in “media/import”

3. That’s all. Now you can import with dataflow import profile.

Drop me a message if you face any trouble implementing this.

Also let me know if this helps you.

Thank You Guys…
