Summary0002071: Warning is missing: that $this->sAltImageDir='' sets only from where to take pictures, not where to upload
Descriptionif $this->sAltImageDir='' is set, via admin uploaded images are not shown neither in admin (Administer products -> Prouducts -> Pictures tab) nor in frontend. In this case, pictures are uploaded to default img dir (shop_dir/out/pictures) instead of the one, described in $this->sAltImageDir=''.
The thing is, that this option sets only from where pictures should be taken, for displaying, but it is not for setting where to upload the pictures.

When picture is uploaded via admin, it should always be uploaded to the default dir localy. So if option sAltImageDir is set, shop owner should make sure, that local pictures are synchronized with the remote place by his own and there is full set of needed pictures.

To make it clear for user:
Check if sAltImageDir is set, and if yes - then display the warning:
"OXID eShop cannot upload article pictures to the remote location, which is defined in your file ($this->sAltImageDir='...'). Picture will be uploaded locally. Please take care that pictures would be synchronized also to defined remote location.

2. Include Help text in the place where pictures can be uploaded:
"In configuration file an alternative path can be defined with $this->sAltImageDir='...' where article pictures are loaded from. During upload pictures still would be stored locally, so in this case need to synchronize set of pictures with manually or with custom scripts"."
