Hey everyone,

I was wondering if there is any way to implement a carousel for the product images on the product page?

Something along the lines like this:

So the idea is:

1. Have the customer click an image

2. Image enlarges

3. Customer can choose left and right arrows

 

If there is a way to also have a zoom option for these images that would help.

 

Thanks!

Hello @bubbles1572 ,

Yes, it is possible to implement a carousel for product images on a Shopify store's product page. There are a few ways to do this:

- Using a Shopify app: There are several carousel apps available in the Shopify App Store that you can use to add a carousel to your product page such as MagicZoom, Product Image Zoom,... These apps usually have pre-built functions and styles for creating carousels, and often also have built-in support for image zoom.

- Using a theme: Some Shopify themes come with built-in support for carousels on the product page. You can check the theme's documentation to see if it has this feature.

- Using custom code: You can add a carousel to your product page by adding custom code to your theme's liquid files. You can use JavaScript libraries such as Slick, Owl Carousel, or Flickity for this. You would first need to include the library's CSS and JavaScript files on your product page. Then, you would need to create the HTML structure for the carousel, and initialize the carousel using the library's functions.

- Using Shopify section: If your theme supports sections, you can use a product image carousel section which is available in the Shopify theme store.

 

It's important to note that if you are going to use custom code make sure to create a back up of your theme before making any changes and test it in a development store before publishing it to your live store.

 

We hope this is helpful for you and don't be hesitate to contact us for any further questions.
