After uploading some Product Images I now have duplicate images in my WordPress Media Library

When you first upload a Product Image by entering the URL to that image WooCommerce will download that image into the WordPress Media Library and store this alongside all you other WordPress media files. To prevent duplicate copies of Product Images from being uploaded make sure you do either of the following:

  • after uploading a Product Image enter the WordPress ID for that image into the ID field on the Product Images tab (see our video on upload Product Images for further details)
  • after uploading a Product Image click the Update Product from WooCommerce button which will delete all Product data and download the latest version from WooCommerce, including the Product images and their WordPress IDs.
