I am downloading (for backup) the product image file via WebDAV. Do you know if these images can be modified and then uploaded keeping the same unique image url issued by BC system? (ie I would like to overlay the images but not change other files i.e. feeds that reference those image urls.

Thank you!

Sorry Sally,  I responded to this yesterday, but I guess I forgot to hit post.  I am checking with Bigcommerce.  I don't see why you wouldn't be able to swap images as long as they have the same file name, but I don't know how the CDN handles the upload.

Lol...I do that often.

Thanks for checking. I know when you manually upload product images (even with the same file name) the CDN issues a unique extension rather than just replacing the current image.

That was what concerned my, as that would likely not work, but there might be a trick to it.  They should respond to me today.

Hi Sally,  Here's some pretty good information from Bigcommerce on how the images are now handled.
