Configurable products attribute images

Configurable products attribute images

In Magento 1.9.x it was possible to upload images on main (configurable product) level and add a label to show the correct image for the attribute selection on the front-end. 


In Magento 2.x this is only possible by assigning images on simple product level in combination with the swatches functionality. However this is not what I want.


I sell shirts with prints. The shirts itself are blank and added to Magento as a simple product for each size and color. They have a default image of the blank shirt. The prints itself are the configurable products with the simple products as child products (configurations). Now I want to upload the shirt images on configurable product level in the different colors with the same print. If a customer selects a shirt color now it's showing the simple product image (always the same), but it should show the shirt with print that I uploaded on configurable product level.


Does anyone have an idea how to accomplish this in Magento 2.x? I have searched for plugins, but the closest I come across is:


... But that's for Magento 1.7.x 


Re: Configurable products attribute images

Hi @Brtkrlsn,

Since that feature is not included in Magento 2 out-of-the-box, you should create a custom extension to add that feature. Magento 2 is a completely new platform, so the extension for Magento 1.7 is not going to work as reference for the code.

Hi @Brtkrlsn


I think it's best to hire someone and get them do it for you. It's not a core M2 functionality so it may require some customization & development.

Thanks Gabriel,


Too bad this functionality is not implemented in Magento 2.x
This means I need to decide to either switch back to version 1.9 or create some custom component that will handle this. Maybe I missed something in the documentation, but that's not the case I understand now.


Best regards,
