Otto is an image scheduling tool that saves you time by automating image updates in your Shopify store.
How will Otto help you?
You have a lot to worry about in your store, from supporting customers to managing inventory. Changing graphics shouldn't be a burden or another thing on your mind.
Plan your image updates in advanced and let our scheduler do the work for you.
Example use cases
- Have graphics already prepared for the month? - Add all the images to the scheduler in one 10 minute session. Let the app do the updates for you throughout the month. Your designer can focus on creating new graphics for the next month.
- Upcoming product launch or sale? - Schedule an image to update at the same time as your new product, collection or sale goes live.
- Need an image to update while you are out of office? - Schedule an image to update late at night, during the weekend or while you are on vacation.
How it works?
Step #1 - Create An Otto Image
An Otto Image is a place in your store where you want to schedule image updates (Homepage Banner, Collection Page Sidebar, etc.) You can name this image anything you'd like.
Step #2 - Show The Image In Your Store
Follow our installation guide to add the image to one of your stores pages. Not a coder? - No worries, you can add it to your homepage using the theme customizer. Or if you have some coding experience then you can install it anywhere in your site. This only needs to be setup once per image.
Step #3 - Schedule Future Images
Begin scheduling by adding images to your queue. You can choose a date/time for when you want the image to update, add alt text and a link.
Step #4 - Sit Back and Let Otto Do The Updates
Images will update for you at their specified time. The new image will be uploaded to the asset file within your theme. The previous image will be replaced and removed from your store.

FABULOUS app! I don't know why thousands of people are not using this! It's like scheduling social posts and emails. You can be asleep at midnight when the season changes or the holiday changes, instead of setting your alarm to change those promo images. It's a TOTAL LIFE SAVER!
Hard to imagine why this app has no reviews. I've been using it for a few months to schedule a banner image for our weekly specials. It's fantastic. I set up next week's image to load, and just like clockwork, the new image gets published. Otto is a simple app that I couldn't manage without.
Thanks so much! Glad you are enjoying using Otto.
