Can I have catalog image, detail image for product, when customer leaves default image, can I change image to reflect a different color choice?

Can I also add some swatch images to the description portion and style with css?
Thanks,

Lias

I don't think that I'm understanding exactly what you are hoping to accomplish. When it comes to the images that you upload for the products in the back end it will create the thumbnail and larger image to view at this time. There is no way to make it create alternately colored versions from the uploaded images.

When it comes to adding images to the description this is not supported within the iRite instance used in PowerStore. However since you can use the source button to view and edit the html code directly you could put in an image this way. When in the source you would just need to add in an img tag and set the src attribute to a valid web source for the image like this:

<img src="http://your_image_location_here.jpg" alt="" />

Please post back about the initial part if I have got it wrong.

color choice

Dear Eric,

I think that you misunderstood my initial question. I entered a default product image and detail image for my blue coat. From the admin end, can go to edit options, choose a green coat and add a different image so that when a customer chooses the green coat from the drop down menu, they now see my green coat image.

Is this clearer?

Thanks so much,

Lisa

Ok, I think I understand now. The explanation helped. You can definitely do this for a product that has different options. Using your analogy of a coat with multiple color options is correct. If in the product update page you selected the green color option any updates you make would be specific to that variation including the images descriptions and other product properties.

The only exception to this would be if you checked the box to update all of the entries with those values, then they would be applied across all the variations of that product.

What the user will experience on the front end is the default options for the product, then if they update the color to green it will show them the image you uploaded for that color option, presumably a green coat.
