Option type - Image list

Format the filename to match option value name

The image must be named after the color option in lowercase and formatted as a PNG or JPG.


For one-word names, the formatting is the most straightforward:

If the option value is Black, then name your image black.png or black.jpg.

If the image name prefix is Color, then name your image color-black.png or color-black.jpg


For multiple-word names, use hyphens to separate each word:

If your option value is named Dark Blue, name the image dark-blue.png or dark-blue.jpg.

If the image name prefix is Color, then name your image color-dark-blue.png or color-dark-blue.jpg


Like spaces, slashes and most other special characters are replaced with hyphens:

If your option value is Blue/Gray, then name your image blue-gray.png or blue-gray.jpg.

If the image name prefix is Color, then name your image color-blue-gray.png or color-blue-gray.jpg


Upload the files

To do that, you will first need to upload an image in the Files section of Shopify. You can learn more about how to do that here:
