How can I change the order that product images for products with colour variations. We have a product with 8 colour variations. We have the colour swatches enabled. Each colour has a unique image, but then we have around 5 images which are general for all colours. Right now it shows each colour image first and the general images last. So users have to scroll through 8 identical images (only different in colour) until getting to the other 5 images.
Ideally it should only show the colour image for the colour swatch selected followed by the other 5 images. And then when we click a new colour only the first image is replaced. Is there an app that can do this?
This guy does some pretty solid tutorials. I think this video can help you out:
Yes, there is: https://apps.shopify.com/variant-image-automator
Hope this helps
I'm not sure for app but with code yes it's possible.
Basic idea is with a callback function you have to exclude the image which doesn't belongs to specific variant on selection of swatch (variant) but keep the selected variant images + general images.
