Hello! Is there a way to force Printify and/or Shopify to group mockup photos with each variant photo? For example, if I have a phone case design that I put on 10 different models of phone, Printify generates 4 mockups per phone model in addition to the 10 main product images. When the design is published, the main product photos all appear together and the 40 mockups all appear at the end of that list. Clicking though the photos in the image browser on the product page on my store will correctly and sequentially show the different phone models in the same order as they appear in the variant list, but the mockups associated with each phone model all appear at the end of the primary product photos. This makes no sense. No customer can be expected to click through all of the "title" photos to try and find the mockups that go with that phone. I need to be able to have each title photo followed by all relevant mockups, then on to the next title photo and its mockups and so on. It's nearly impossible to rearrange all of those mockups by hand without screwing up the order somewhere and ending up with, say, a title photo for an iPhone 13 next to mockups for an iPhone 11. Confusion would abound. How do I get each title photo to be followed by its associated mockups???
So this has been driving me crazy. This is the best solution I have found and it's only for Dawn 8.0-11.0 though some people commented it works with other themes too - How To Show Only Selected Variant Images - Shopify Dawn Theme (websensepro.com)
It only works with "Desktop Layout" set to "Stacked" under the Product Information section, carousel and thumbnails do not work. You'll need to change this setting first in order for the code to be generated properly. Also the tutorial line numbers are correct so I recommend watching the linked YouTube video and looking at the code where he adds it. You can then search for the string and find where to place it. The real pain though is adding the alt text because when all the images load they load together and if you can't distinguish between the images it's pretty much impossible. For color variants this works but I'm using canvas wraps which have size variants so there is no way to tell the difference between the image for 6x6 and 30x30. I hope that helps.
I agree 100%. It does seem it's on the Shopify end but I opened a request with Printify to see if they can assist. Maybe do the same if you haven't already, the more voices they hear the more likely they are to act. It's pretty ridiculous that Shopify doesn't handle this out of the box as it's a very common need.
