Magento Dataflow is a data exchange framework that can be used by both merchants and
developers. The basic Dataflow tool includes preconfigured profiles that make it easy to import
and export product and customer data. The profiles can be used as they are, or be modified to
meet your needs. You can create additional profiles for operations that are performed on a
regular basis. For more sophisticated applications, Advanced Profiles can be defined in XML to
perform custom data exchange operations.
The following instructions show how to use Dataflow profiles to export all product data, and
import new product images.
Step 1: Export All Products
Step 2: Copy the Product Images to the Server
