@pinwall_cycle_parts, Apologize if you had some previous posting but we've not seen it. Can you please give some example item ID? Are you staying the listing does not have gallery image uploaded, or is that some other issue?

@pinwall_cycle_parts, Per [documentation][1], ExternalPictureURL is defined as: "When returned this contains the original URL of a self-hosted pictures" Both items listed have EPS hosted URL, as indicated by when you call GetItem, see PictureSource: Gallery http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/NzY4WDEwMjQ=/z/tkoAAOSwLEtYfmvv/$_1.JPG?set_id=880000500F PicturePack http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/NzY4WDEwMjQ=/z/tkoAAOSwLEtYfmvv/$_1.JPG?set_id=880000500F http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/NzY4WDEwMjQ=/z/agEAAOSwt5hYfmvv/$_1.JPG?set_id=880000500F http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/MTAwMFgxMDAw/z/2UwAAOSwopRYfmvy/$_1.JPG?set_id=880000500F EPS If it's a self-hosted image you should see PictureSource as "Vendor" [1]: http://developer.ebay.com/Devzone/XML/docs/Reference/eBay/GetItem.html#Response.Item.PictureDetails.ExtendedPictureDetails.PictureURLs.ExternalPictureURL

I believe I get what your saying. When I go to revise files how can I revise it to self-hosted pictures then? (The reason why I am doing this is to get a list of what pics are updated and not updated and correct and vs not correct etc.. ) I can query stuff out. If helps any too. We have been changing a bunch of our listings to keep up with the new ebay terms. I tried looking in - http://pics.ebaystatic.com/aw/pics/pdf/us/file_exchange/File_Exchange_Advanced_Instructions.pdf and did not see anything. Maybe I am looking for the wrong words?

When I go to revise it. It seems to work if I do something along the lines of adding this in > column - GalleryType Gallery

@pinwall_cycle_parts, The PictureSource is now changed to "Vendor" so I believe you went to revise it with your own URLs. If you now call GetItem using the seller's token you will see the original ExternalPictureURL
