Variant picture doesn't change variant choice

I have a product with 9 variants.  I have a picture for each variant.  When you chose an item from the drop down menu the picture changes to that choice.  But if you click on the variant picture, the name in the drop down menu doesn't change to the corresponding choice.

 

So if you chose "Lavender" from the drop down menu the picture of lavender is enlarged.  But if you choose the picture of lavender instead, the selection in the drop down menu is whatever you last chose, it doesn't automatically change it to lavender.

 

How to I make it so that choosing a pictures brings up the correct drop down item?

Hi, @bbuchler 

 

Elle here from Shopify. 

Most themes update the main image when a variant with an image is selected. The update never happens in both directions though, because having a change of the main image automatically update a variant selection might confuse shoppers into adding the wrong variant to the cart. With that said, you can follow the steps below to implement the feature of selecting variants by clicking their images:
