I'd suggest using the media library for your images. In the Excel sheet, if you have at least the name of the image stored, you can concatincate the actual URL based on the file placmeent in the media library.

Create the media library in Kentico. Find the directory in the file system. Typically under /cms/<sitecodename>/media/<medialibrarycodename>. Example for MySite with library named images would be /cms/MySite/media/images.

Next, copy the files into that directory in the file system: /MySite/media/images.

Then, in you're Excel sheet, update the filename to prepend /MySite/media/images/ to the file name. This will get you the relative link you're looking for in that document.

Lastly, you'll need to go into the media libaray and import all the images.

Please follow below steps to import images into Media library and update the image path in Page Type


  1. Keep all the images in one Physical folder
  2. Update excel file with DocumentID and ImagePath Eg: DocumentID | ImagePath ---> 154|D:\Importimages\Image.png [Sample data in Excel file]
  3. Implement custom code for Import/Update Media files using Kentico Media library API. Refer URL
  4. In the same code add update document content based on documentID using the Kentico Page API. Refer URL

Logic as follows ,

  1. Read excel file data
  2. Check Media library availability(Provide media library name/ID) and read the Image path from excel file
  3. Create a new media file
  4. Get Media file path after successful creation media file in Media library
  5. Update document based on the documentID with Media library image path i.e., from step 4

Note: You can implement this logic in web part/any aspx page[code behind]

I hope this will help you.
