Magento’s product image management for multiple views is completely inefficient.
When you add an image, it is assigned to all views by default, so you need to get back to each view and check “exclude” every time you add an image. On top of that, when you select a distinct view, all images are shown, instead of only the images assigned to that view.
We use multiple views for different languages, and each language has a corresponding image and label. It’s bearable with 1 image for each product, but when you try to add 2, 3, 4, 5 images the whole thing becomes un-manageable.
The goal of this project is to address these two issues.
