From time to time when browsing the internet I come across a Magneto store that has images missing, normally I wouldn’t of noticed that is was a Magento installation until the great big default Magento M shows on the thumbnails of the missing images. There are a couple of ways to change the default placeholder, but by-far the easiest and most complaint way to modify the image is via the Admin.
Log into the admin area, then goto:
- System > Configuration > Catalog > Product Image Placeholders
Once you have loaded the tab above you will be presented with a file upload form where you can easily replace the default placeholder images.
