How to change the image of a matrix item?

By default, a random image is chosen from the items linked to the matrix. However, you have the option to manually choose which image is displayed. This requires a connection to an FTP server.

1. Create a folder on the FTP server for the matrix images.
2. In the CMS, navigate to Administration > Settings > FTP server for external data.
3. Link the folder directory to the Matrix pictures directory setting.
4. To correctly link the image to the matrix item, the image must be given the filename of the Catalog Name. (See also Items > Item matrix). In the example below, this is Palace.jpg.

5. Upload the image to the designated folder on the FTP server.
6. Start an image synchronisation with the ftp server.
