How to Add Photos to Items or Folders

Sortly allows you to easily identify items in your inventory by adding up to 8 photos per item and folder from the desktop or the app..

Below are steps on how to add photos from each location as well as some common photo-related questions.

Adding photos to the web via CSV/Excel Import

To add a photo via Bulk Import (CSV or Excel), you will need a public URL for the photo. The photo should be searchable via Google or other search engines. Please note: This will only be an option if you use the Expert template from the Advanced Import option to upload. 

You can download the Expert Template from within the app, or you can view this article for the attachments.

Size dimensions

Sortly allows for images up to 1080p on the longest side. If the photo was taken in portrait, this would be on the vertical side. If the photo were taken in landscape mode, this would be on the horizontal side.

Specifically, images uploaded to Items or Folders have the maximum image dimensions of 5K by 5K (5120 × 2880) (height and width).

The small thumbnail that displays next to the item details in the available views will crop the photo to 100x100 and use the direct center of the image. Unfortunately, you cannot select the thumbnail you wish to capture at this time.
