Product images

Availability of product images

Exports can include images of content providers, manufacturers, and suppliers.

Thanks to the cooperation between ITscope and Icecat, every customer can export product images in high resolution with an additional Icecat Content Premium contract.

Depending on the content contract on file for the account, 1WorldSync Content Basic also allows the product image gallery from 1WorldSync Digital Contents to be exported in high resolution.

Images and media are generally provided as a link, local caching e.g. in the shop is possible.

However, some manufacturers require contracts if you want to use images for the API or export.

Overview of image sources:

  • Icecat images in different sizes, with additional Icecat contract content
  • Manufacturer images in different sizes, depending on the contract
  • Supplier images in different sizes, depending on the contract
  • 1WorldSync images in different sizes, with the 1WorldSync Content Basic contract.

Image functions and services

All image links from ITscope are delivered via a separate service to ensure better performance and cache usage of the images. The links are used in a uniform way on the ITscope platform, for exports and for API formats and have the form:

  Https://media.itscope.com/img/p/{key}?{transformation}

 Example:

 https://media.itscope.com/img/p/YJCF_sGkQttg22qeb0hA3NEVQu1xlVTaYDKI1yjZYRA=/aHR0cDovL2ltYWdlcy5pY2VjYXQuYml6L2ltZy9ub3JtL2hpZ2gvMTk4ODY2NjMtNDg4MC5qcGc=?fitcrop=64x64dBOTH

These links can be copied from the ITscope platform or obtained via export/API for a larger number of products. You can append parameters yourself to perform transformations. The following modifiers are available at the beginning:

  • Fit picture:
    • fit = {$ width} x {$ height}
  • Fit picture with crop:
    • fitcrop = {$ width} x {height} $ d [NONE | VERTICAL | HORIZONTAL | BOTH | SMALLEST]
  • Fit and rotate image:
    • smart = {$ width} x {$ height} x {$ rotation}
  • Picture in grayscale:
    • greyscale = 1

The results are cached for one day.
