How can I add multiple images to my catalog of products?

I am setting up an online store, and I'd like to add a few more images for each piece, just like when I add multiple images to the site. How can I do that? For selling online, multiple images of the same product is crucial, since the customers cannot see live and touch the item. I'm pretty sure the option is here somewhere, but I can't find it :(
Thanks!

Yes,it was one of the first things I'vec hecked. I've seen the tutorial again just now but I still didn't find the answer to my question how to add multiple pictures for one product in my shop. Can you please point me to the right bullet point (number) in the tutorial?
Thanks.

No, I haven't found my answer to my question in the online tutorial.
That's all I found about photos in your shop:

1.2.4. Upload an image of the product. A clear, well taken photograph will go a long way towards selling your product!
1.2.5. You can use the radio buttons in the top right hand corner of the dialog box to set the alignment of your image.

Notice 'A clear, well taken photograph....' part...

Can you please help out?
Thanks.

I said I was going to sleep an hour ago but then saw your post and never back away from a challenge...

Okay so the quality is bad because I was in a rush and inadvertently made the images 125 x 125 pixels instead of 200 x 200 but with it you get the idea how you can use an animated GIF image as your buy now button image.

As I said the image quality is poor but if you were to use a medium sized image it would look much better.

If this is something you are thinking of it will take me a while to write a tutorial...

Scroll down to the buy now button

Hey I like the animated button idea. If you ever write a tutorial for it, would you mind somehow letting me know, or even just post here as I follow the thread, and I'll see it immediately?
Thanks!

Check my page once more because I increased the quality of the images

If you crop the images you wish to use to 250x250 pixels and convert the images to GIF then you can use this animated generator to make your animated GIF files to upload to your file manager and then into your paypal buy now button.. You need to have the images the same size when you upload them to the generator before you use it. If you use the "Make all images the same size" feature in the generator the images get all messed up.
Also, make the time between the images as long as you need it to be.

Truthfully, it doesn't take a tutorial if you have ever resized images. I will write the tutorial tomorrow to include how to resize and generate an animated GIF tomorrow. It's midnight here...

Here is the generator...

If that generator is too hard for you I have an additional one on my links page near the bottom. Look for the flashing "Examples"

Good night and happy site building
Ed

P.S. Hi in Cyprus ;)

Thank you Ed for the explanation, seems straight forward. I do know how to resize, so that shouldn't be a problem. Thanks for the generator link as well, that's new to me.

Good night! Here in Cyprus is already 10.20 am the next day :)
