Hi, I am trying to do a configurable product which will add the pictures of the associated product item when viewed and or sold. Can this be done and if so how do I do it. I purchase a program form Aitco for the configurable product adding but that does not seem to have the picture add.
in associated products I see you can add photos and I did but they don't show just the main configurable product does.
If you mean you want to change configurable product image when a combination of attributes is selected from the drop-down(s), you can do it using Swatch Images functionality available in Magento. For that you need to enable swatches in the Admin and activate them for necessary configurable attributes.
If you have, for example, configurable product in three colors and two sizes, you will have 6 associated products. Each 2 products will have different images that will most likely be based on color.You also need to have Base images for each of your associated simple product. You can find detailed instructions on color swatches here -
Thank you for your reply however I have not been able to get this to work. I have all images in swatch folder as png. I made lower case (they did not import from file zilla as lower case) I went to simple products uploaded the 2 png files and in the label file, I label 1st photo blue sapphire quartz-swatch, the second blue sapphire quartz-swatch and marked it base. Still nothing. I am lost now been at this for several weeks.
