Magento PDF invoice with product images extension

Featured Image

Hello everyone, short while after I wrote article Add custom attribute to Magento’s PDF invoice I received quite a number of requests for explanation on how to add products images to PDF invoice. As I had some time, I’ve created an extension that will do just that.

So, this extension is based on old one with custom attribute. It’s tested on Magento Professional 1.9, and will show thumbnails of product images (if those images exist, and Magento can read them) together with products on invoice.

Here’s a screenshot of one of my last tests:

After you’ve seen it and that’s what you require, you can download it here.

Installation process comes down to extraction of files / directories over your “app” directory.

It won’t work with “custom attribute” extension I wrote earlier.
As always, please make backup before installation, as this is provided for usage at your own risk.

    Hi you code is not work for me. It creates a column of ‘Product Image’. But under that no images are showing. Right now i am working with my local machine.

    Thanks for further help.

  2. Dear Mladen, I have the same issue as Meral, I can see the new column with “Product Image” but I dont see the pictures.

    Thank you very much for your great job!!

    Best regards,

    Try to replace
    $imageLocation = substr($imagePath,strlen(Mage::getBaseUrl()));

    $imageLocation = substr($imagePath,strlen(Mage::getBaseUrl(Mage_Core_Model_Store::URL_TYPE_WEB)));

    For some reason, for products that have different attributes, the row height is messed up. Here is an example: Any idea why this is?

  8. Thanks
    But where is the image of the invoice ?

  9. @tutela would you specify what do you mean?

    If I got your point, the image is the image associated for some of the ordered / invoiced products. You can control this from Magento admin panel -> edit product -> tab Images.

    Physically the images usually are placed in /media/catalog/* or /media/tmp/*

    Does this/Should this work with magneto 1.7?
    My client is migrating from etsy, and I’d like to provide as familiar a workflow as I can.

    In app/code/local/Inchoo/Invoice/Model/Order/Pdf/Items/Invoice

    Open Default.php , scroll to the bottom and find:

    //Edited default line height
            $lineBlock = array(
                'lines'  => $lines,
                'height' => 60


    //Edited default line height
            $lineBlock = array(
                'lines'  => $lines,
                'height' => 20

    This will reduce the line spacing on the invoice so that it makes a little more sense and allows for more products to fit on a single invoice page.

  16. mohan

  17. Sushant

    mohan if you will replace :
    $imageLocation = substr($imagePath,strlen(Mage::getBaseUrl()));
    BY :
    $imageLocation = substr($imagePath,strlen(Mage::getBaseUrl(Mage_Core_Model_Store::URL_TYPE_WEB)));

    IN app/code/local/Inchoo/Invoice/Model/Order/Pdf/Invoice.php
    Line: 27
    As written by Max above, It will work perfectly.
