The image variants feature of Shopify can help you display a product that comes in different sizes, shapes, or styles easily on the same product page. Based on customers’ different options from the product’s drop-down menu, the image will change with the different styles accordingly. However, the first thing you have to do is set up your product variants, and then you can add variant images for each of them.
You can easily create product variants while creating a new product. In the product’s inventory and variants section, each of your product variants will appear in a list after you have created them. The product variants will now be live in your Shopify store.
