OK, so this is something I knew, but of course did not think about while adding new products for our studio.
While ceating the item, you are given the option to add the photo. Make sure you do this FIRST FIRST FIRST!!!
This is such a headache, when you get done adding in all your information and then say to yourself, oh I need to add the photo, and you do, then all of a sudden the page reloads itself and all your entered info is gone! Make sure you avoid this headache by ALWAYS UPLOADING YOUR IMAGE FIRST. Or save it then go back and edit it wo add the photo, either way.
AVOID THIS HEADACHE, it can ruin your night when you are entering product with lots of parameters.
