# Batch Image Upload (updated)
The Batch Image Upload process allows you to upload multiple images at once; and, have the system automatically assign them to different items.
Each image must be mapped to a single item. If, for example, you have a folder of images named
3, etc., the system can upload these images in the folder and assign them to their respective items numbered
3, and so on.
Any item can be assigned multiple images by setting the filename (from the example above) for the images as
1_b, etc. This will assign the
b images to item#

If you want to assign the same image to multiple items, you can copy it "locally" on your computer and give it a name that will map to each item. Then continue with upload process for the image folder.

Although precise dimensions are not critical (since screen sizes will vary), the following aspect ratios will work well with images of reasonable file sizes:
- rectangular (
4:3, etc.) for background and item images
- square (
1:1), especially with logo
- long and thin (for example
6:1) should only be used for banner style images
Also see Image Sizes for ideas on some specific sizes to consider for your images.
