Main photo on a product with variants

Solved

Is there a way to select which photo is the main one associated with a product that has variants? Our store has products for which we have photos of all the variants as a group as well as shots of each variant singularly. We'd prefer the group shot to be what customers see first on the page, but the default seems to be the photo set for the first variant. How do we make the group shot the lead without removing the photos from the variants?

Hi, @MRogerGeorge. Welcome to the Community. There is a way to do this, via a theme code customization!

 

What theme are you using? Are you comfortable with coding? We have a tutorial for Showing a featured image until a variant is selected that walks you through the steps if you’d like to give it a go yourself. However, if you would prefer to have assistance with it and are using a free Shopify-made theme, then our Theme department may be able to help. Please submit a customization request by logging in via the Help Center and connecting with a Support Advisor via live chat, callback or email to get started.

 

If you are not using a Shopify-made theme, then I recommend hiring a Shopify Expert. They’ll be able to implement it for you. 

 

Since this is the next step I've marked this reply as the solution for the benefit of others who may discover this topic. Let me know if I can help with anything else!
