How can I change the main image in my products page?

I'm using the Minimal theme and I think it's set up to show the product image of the first inventory item which is arranged alphabetically.

 

Is there a way to choose which image shows up first? Can it be another image that's not a product swatch?

 

My store url is www.thesarongdress.com

Hey, there.

 

Dallas here from Shopify's Social Care Team.

 

Just to clarify, you're looking for a way to change the image order on your product page?

 

That is definitely possible, you'd just have to go to your Store Admin under Products. On the product page, you'll see a list of all of the images that you have in association with your product. The image that is the biggest and furthest to the left will be the one that is the featured image. That would be the one that would show up first on the page, that would also be the one that would show up on your home page for the item when it's featured.

 

If you're looking to change that image you'd just have to drag the image in the Admin.

Once you drag it the image order will automatically save.

 

Can you try that and let me know if you run into any issues?

Hi Dallas,

 

That's how I set it up thinking that's how it works.

It seems some themes change the default image to the first variant image for some reason. I'm having the same problem with my shop. Its not using the default image
