Hi, We are using the findItemsByKeywords operation to retrieve ebay items. It works fine, however, many results are returned with an empty image in the "galleryURL" parameter, for example:
http://thumbs1.ebaystatic.com/pict/04040_0.jpg When I check the item's page on ebay it has an image. Any idea why and how we can request items with images? Thanks!
You might need to ignore the gallery URL, and instead request more images with your API call (there are input parameters for that), and then scale down 1 of those images to use as gallery in your app/site. Another "hack" is to build your own gallery image URL manually, based on item# and some other details.
Yes, explore those various OutputSelector filters/options. I'm not sure about those Item Specifics you need, though. Maybe try GetSingleItem over in the Shopping API family, but I can't remember if that API call will help.
