Handling product images when migrating from Microsoft POS 2009 to RMS

Microsoft Dynamics POS 2009 stores its product images in the database directly, as ‘blobs’.

By contrast, Microsoft RMS stores images on the file system and relies on the PictureName field to indicate the image filenames.

When migrating from POS 2009 to RMS, because you are migrating from one storage format to another, it is necessary to re-assign your product images.

To facilitate this process, we can supply a complete backup of the images currently assigned to the products on your WebStore. The backup will be supplied as a compressed (zip) file. The images can be extracted to the RMS pictures path and, then, you can manually assign existing images to each product using drag’n’drop in PAM.
