After I delete a variant, the variant image still shows on the shop product page, even-though it is not visible in the product media section so I cannot delete it from there (the picture was added as a tumbnail to the variant only)
How do I remove these pictures now from the shop front? From where to delete them?
I use the simple template.
Hope someone can steer me in the right direction, many thanks in advance.
Same issue here! Did you find a way to solve this? Looks like that it is simply not possible to delete variant images which sounds like a huge shopify bug to me.
In addition to that, all variant pictures show up in the product picture gallery. I recently uploaded a wrong variant picture by mistake. Now it shows up as product picture as well - with no option to delete it. Very frustrating.
Okay, found the solution:
In your product page editor, press ctrl+F5 (windows) to reload the page without using the cache. The media section will now show all media files including the variant images. Now just click on the picture you want to delete to open the preview. Click on the trash bin icon and your picture's gone
For those struggling with variant images showing up in the product picture gallery, here is the solution. Not as easy as I expected, but worth a try. Good luck guys!
