This article provides a solution for the issue where Adobe stock images uploaded into the file system directories
pub/media/catalog do not display in the Media Gallery UI. This is because the images are outside of the allowed media gallery directories. For these images to display merchants need to delete the images on the file system and re-upload into an allowed Media Gallery directory.
Merchants can upload Adobe Stock images to Storage Root in the Media Gallery but these images do not appear in the UI & will appear as though they were not uploaded. This is because the system notices that the image is already uploaded to the file system although it is not available in the Media Gallery UI. This means that once a merchant uploads an image to
pub/media/catalog, they cannot use that image until it is deleted in the file system directly.
Steps to reproduce
The image displays.
An error message displays: The image cannot be located. We cannot find this image in the media gallery.
Images can be uploaded to the Media Gallery Storage Root via Adobe Stock.
Select any subdirectory of the Media Gallery Storage Root (excluding Storage Root > Catalog) before uploading an Adobe Stock image.
Delete uploaded Adobe Stock images from the
pub/media/catalog folders on the Adobe Commerce file system and upload images into any allowed Media Gallery Storage Root subdirectories instead (excluding Storage Root > Catalog).
