Re: SCRIPT TO IMPORT PRODUCT IMAGESby
How do you want to map the product to its picture? is it by name?
No, it's not that easy. You should use xmlrpc to upload the images (in python):
# remember to import base64
# read file data
sfile_data = sfile.read()
# do base64 encoding
product['image_variant'] = base64.b64encode(sfile_data)
# place in dict
template['image'] = product['image_variant']
# update the product
sock.execute(dbname, uid, pwd, 'product.product', 'write', productid, product)
If you still want to interact with the database and file system directly, then you should look at the ir.attachment model and ir_attachment table.

I assume, that all these samples from odoo 8 are no good, as with odoo 9 you do not store your files in the database anymore, but in the file system.
I am in the midst of creating scripts to transfer a largish non odoo erp site to odoo.
There are very few products (and no picture at all).
Nevertheless, I would like to try my hand in writing a script that does do bulk upload of images.
Please answer the following:

is it by name ?
Like "Product XX with red border" has a product_xx_with_red_border.jpg in the file system?
If you could provide some such mapping, the import could be easy (i hope).

Images can be import trough csv by putting them as base64. Try to export a product with a image for a example.
