Improve product presentation to win customers' trust

Let your customers see the final version of the product they are buying to reduce the returns resulting from customer frustration.

With this Magento configurable product image switcher customers can select image attributes as many times as they want to see different variants of the product, zoom images and eventually choose what they like.

Automatically use price of associated simple products

By default in Magento you have to specify price difference for options of configurable products. E.g. color green +$10. No need to do this annoying thing anymore – now price of the simple products will be used automatically. So if you import a few thousand of associated products with updated prices, you will not need to spend a couple days updating price difference for configurable products.

Display prices of simple products in drop-downs

Now you can display prices of simple options associated with configurable products in drop-downs. It's possible to choose whether to show actual price or the price difference.

Prove to customers that your products are of the highest quality

In what way? - Give your customers a great view of the product. Using our Magento color picker extension, clients can zoom and see every detail of the product.

Master one more segment of users, who don't believe Internet is a place for shopping

With this configurable swatches for Magento you can convince your customers you are the one they should deal with by showing them products in detail without hiding anything.

Show prices of simple items as a swatch label

Adjust the display of simple product prices to your needs. With the extension you can show them right under size swatches as swatch labels. This handy option will make your product pages much more visually attractive and improve customer shopping experience.

Use images instead of plain text

Apply images as options for configurable products and make your store intuitive for customers

Upload images for all attribute sets for configurable products and then use the images for selection of configurable product options.

Set product colors using Color Picker

In case you need a solid color for any product attribute you can use our Color Picker option with a color palette. Moreover, it will take you only a few seconds to set a product color thanks to using CSS files.

Use images of associated products for swatches of one attribute, e.g. color

You can save some time by using resized images of associated simple products for swatches of one of the attributes, e.g. color. Also this enables you to have unique Magento color swatches for each configurable product. All you need to do is select the attribute for which the feature should be activated. It can be selected individually for each product.

Images are easier to understand

In fact they are multi-language means of communication, which don't need to be translated. It will be a lot simpler and quicker for customers to select the right options.

Additional usability features

With lightbox and product zoom options you make the process of image viewing a lot more user-friendly. Alternatively you can use images together with text.

magento color swatches

Set a default placeholder image for each attribute

Upload a dummy image that will be used if no image is set for the attribute.

Limit the number of visible swatches on category pages

To keep your category pages clean you can manage the number of swatches displayed under the main product image. In case the number of visible swatches is limited customers will see a link like "More Colors Available".

Cross out the swatches of out of stock products

Due to the Out of Stock Option you can indicate which products of particular color or size are out of stock. This will help customers faster make their choice as they will immediately notice which product configurations are not available at the moment.

Add captions for zoomed images

Display text labels together with zoomed product images. Customize label's display by specifying its position, background and text colors.

Enable selection of configurable products on category and search results pages to get more sales

  • Display attribute icons on category pages.
  • Let your customers select options and add configurable products to cart right from the category page.
  • You can show icons for all attributes of configurable products, so customers will be able to select all product options on the category pages.
  • Enhance display of configurable products on category and search results pages by reloading Magento configurable product images when some configuration is selected.
  • Use these features to make configurable products easy to buy and get more orders.
  • Display Color Swatches with AJAX mode to speed up category pages download (in comparison to "default" extension settings).
  • Enable Reindex option to improve category pages performance.
magento configurable product images

Optimized content presentation

Update product images and description according to customer input (with ajax).

The module can automatically load images and descriptions of the associated simple products chosen by customers. Let’s say a customer chooses nike brand and green color - the extension will show the images and descriptions of the simple product which stands behind these selections. This configurable product images change will let you present products in an attractive way.

Visual effects

Zoom and Lightbox effects work both for default configurable product images and for images loaded based on customer selections.

Automatic selection of attributes if only one option is available

The extension will automatically select value for the attributes which have only one option available. For example, there is a cap which has three colors to choose from. When a customer chooses a color swatch with only one size available, the extension will automatically select the size.

Default image for configurable products with no images

If you haven't uploaded images for some options of configurable products, now you can use default image for such options.

Product image features

  • Full size images and zoom of particular details.
  • Change thumbnail image size to adapt them to the style of your store and make the thumbnails looks as an integral part of your site design.
  • Lightbox option provides a good view of full-size images and user-friendly picture display.
  • Zoom effect offers to closely examine all the product details.
  • Ability to reset chosen product configurations.
magento color swatches

Attribute image features

  • Unlimited number of image attributes, which is especially handy when you sell products of high complexity.
  • Ability to specify dimensions of attribute images on product and category pages.
  • Ability to set up parameters for tooltip display.
  • Zoom effect for color swatches on mouse over.
  • Attribute images are added by simply dragging & dropping them into place.

Multiple configuration options

  • Ability to upload images for all configurable product attributes
  • Full control over visual effects and content update features

Share URLs with set product options

Now when you set different product attributes, product page URL is changing. New URL parameters are added to the current URL via # symbol. So it's possible to share URLs with predefined product options.

Possibility to display price for configurable products as "From X.YY"

Thanks to the extension you can show the price of configurable products in the "From X.YY" format. For example, if simple products have a difference in the price and the cheapest is equal to $12.50, you can display the price of configurable item as "From $12.50".

You can also consider using the solutions below to enhance product presentation:

Clearly inform customers about stock situation with Custom Stock Status extension. Create unlimited number of custom stock statuses, accompany them with nice icons, assign statuses to products manually or automatically and benefit from automatic quantity-based statuses. Let your customers upload images for products with Customer Product Images extension. They will provide real-life examples of product usage and motivate other customers to place orders faster.

Features, integrity, speed
Great features, great integrity with Improved Navigation. Made possible to associate standard colors in navigation filters to the number of related swatches from different products on the product list page. So when certain color is selected in filter, you get all the products who's options include the swatches of that color range. The configurable products show up with selected color in place of main image in the list page.
The speed! It makes whole difference. My 3k swatches in db run as fest as just few in original Magento swatches did. Btw, when i tried Magento swatches feature with that number of swatches, i got nothing but time outs. Original Magento does not index swatches in db.
Support. Well, I wish support for America relocate to Caribbean islands (f.i. Guanaja). It would help to intensify
interaction with customers.
Also i expected to get a coupon to the local cinema as a bonus. Well, maybe with next extension.

The best colour swatch extension I've found
I am using magento 1.9.1 with built in swatch functionality but this swatch extension provides that extra features that you see on those large multinational websites. For the price you pay its worth buying this instead of using the built in magento version. You have alot more flexibility choose display options and a lot more functionality you may have thought would be in magento 1.9.1. This solved my problem in ensuring all images shown on a simple product is shown on the configurable page. Support was also outstanding.

Great extension, excellent support
Very useful extension for not only color attributes, but also for different sizes of the same product, or different package (e.g. dropper bottle or spray bottle). Allows customer to select the most important option right on the category page with visual feedback. Works great with Amasty Ajax Shopping Cart for quick ordering directly from the category page. Support is superb for implementation and for further customization.

Happy with the extension
I’ve been using this extension for some time already and completely happy with it.

The thing I like most is the ability to display the lowest price of a configurable product in a catalog. And of course, presentation of product options is great. It took some time to understand and configure the settings, most of them are quite easy to understand but there are many of them which can be confusing.

There was a minor problem when I upgraded to Magento 1.9. Amasty support fixed it quickly and now it works great again.

I like it
I really liked this swatch module initially (at first sight). Now I’ve been using it for 2 weeks already, and I love it. The set up process wasn’t smooth. It conflicted with another extension, and everything was fixed in the shortest terms.
Actually with these guys help is always just one email away. That is one of the reasons I like Amasty; their products and post-sale service are both second to none.
I only would like to see some exclusive features in this module; it should do more than all the equivalent products.
4 stars for now but you are on the right track.

This module is a must-have for all stores with lots of configurable products. We sell clothing and accessories, so we just have to allow our customers pick different colors for the items they choose.

Didn't run out of the box
If the store specifics presupposes the display of product samples - this is one of the best plugins for you. I'm more than happy to have amasty swatches installed. It's very easy to upload all necessary pics for different attributes. Of course not everything was so sweet and sunny about the app. Right after the installation I found out I refused working with my custom theme. It took tech support guys about 3 days to reply to my call for urgent help, so the help appeared no so urgent as I expected. Averall, now I'm absolutely satisfied with this module and highly recommend to others.

At the end everything works perfectly
This was my first purchase from Amasty and it was not flawless. At first I had some conflicts which were fixed by the support team. A few days later something broke again and I wrote 3 emails to Amasty and received no answer. I cancelled the order and asked for money back.
As it turned out, the emails were not sent somehow and Amasty never received them. Once it was cleared out and all the issues were fixed, the extension works perfectly so I don't need to cancel the order anymore.

There are no suitable words that could describe my feelings about this plugin. Finally after 3 poorly run tools I've found this one. Yes, I do recommend everyone to get it installed, yes it will work with third party mods and custom themes.

I was skeptical about the extension due to the previous sad experience with similar extensions. But this one works as it promises. Thank you Amasty!

Better that default Magento color swatch
This is one of the main extensions in my store.
I've been using it for 2 years already. When I upgraded magento to 1.9 I thought that its color swatch would be similar and I won't need Amasty extension anymore. I tried it but soon understood that the extension is much more flexible than the default Magento color swatch. Good job, Amasty.

Solid and reliable module that makes your store better. It would be good if getting it to work and configuring didn’t take us quite as long. Otherwise it works exactly as described. If you are searching for a plugin with such functionality, you should stick to this one. It’s definitely better than the others we’ve tried so far.

And it looks beautiful on the frontend, just as expected. Superb!

We are using swatch pro for years now. Not only has it worked great, but Amasty support is great. We have recently updated the extension after upgrading Magento CE, they help us with all of our questions and reguests not only in a timely manner but accomplished what we are looking for.
We highly recommend to use Amasty's extensions.they will make it work for you and help you with anything extension related.

Great extension by even greater developers
Before we bought Color Swatches Pro we spent some time configuring RWD configurable swatches but there just wasn't enough of options.
After we bought Color Swatches Pro we had some problem with theme intergration. Even though those weren't bugs, they were more like extension modifications, Amesty support team helped to solve them.
If you are looking for attribute selector extension with images for sizes/colors/... instead of dropdowns, this is the extension for you.

Takes Configurable products to the next level
Have used a number of extensions made by Amasty and have always received great support.
The Color Swatch Pro just takes the configurable products function to the next level as there is so much you can do with it to give the customer a more visual look and ability to select products easier.
Easy to install, and work with, but if you do have difficulty Amasty is there to help quite quickly.

If you thought the Extension was good...
Not only does this extension give you loads of fantastic options to sell you products with colour block, images etc, it also changes the images once selected and the price and the title and the description!
It's brilliant just for the changing as any other website does (no in Magento) but to have the colours too is great.
But hang on, if only that was the end of my review. The support is out of this world. I have purchased a number of extensions from Amasty and whenever I have needed help or even tweaks, they step up and help. No, sorry that will cost you $£$£, no moaning, just happy to help and very knowledgable.
We trust these people so much we have purchased the bulk of all our extensions from them. Fantastic extensions and even more fantastic support! 5* all round!

A must - have for a clothes store.
When you sell clothes and each piece has different colors, this extension is a must-have. We also have some products that are available with different textiles, so each option has its price. Amasty extension handles this perfectly as it automatically shows the price of the simple product that is currently chosen by customer.
Hey Amasty, thanks for that extension, it’s great regardless of all the bugs we found!

Best Decision I've made with Magento Extensions!
Amasty has provided me amazing support in modifying and fixing the issues I have had with Color Swatches. I needed a lot of customization and they were able to make everything work!
I even had extra extensions added that color swatches has been integrated into.
I highly recommend this extension to anyone looking to bring great attribute images to your products.
It goes really well with their layered navigation as well!!!
Take a look at our website and see the great work they have helped to make!

Support is 1st class, I had one minor issue with a feature and the support team fixed it within 30 minutes of my support ticket, you can't get much better than that.
I would have no hesitation in buying any Amasty product.

I don't know why anyone would by extensions from any other developer.

You don't want to be woken up at 2am because there is a problem with an extension. These guys write excellent code and support it too.

complicated install on a custom theme and they went above and beyond to get it working.
I have my entire extension budget earmarked to spend with these guys.
I cannot speak highly of them enough.

It looks like you are looking for a swatch solution and probably have evaluated 5 or so competitors. I did the same thing.In fact, I went in detail looking through all the features and ranking them to finally come up with amasty as the winner. save yourself all that hassle and buy this now. set and forget and go back to the fun reasons you started a store!

good luck

Does not play well with Enterprise
Although I really like this plugin, I have to give it only 2 stars as I spent an entire day debugging it due to the fact that it conflicts with Magento's built-in Enterprise zoom. The Jqzoom that comes with Enterprise has an older version of Jquery and that prevents this plugin from working correctly. After deleting that older version I was able to get this to work but it was a lot of trial-and-error before figuring that out. Please include this in the directions so others don't have to spend that time.

Best color swatch / Configurable product extension of them all
We had tried two other colour extensions for Magento, but both of them lacked features and development was either very slow or non existent. Amasty on the other hand is a company that never fails to keep things up to date and is always improving their extensions. Color Swatches Pro is not just a perfect colour managment system it is also a greatly simplifies the managment of configurable products in Magento with Ajax.

It worked for me!
After installing the extension customers stopped asking so many questions about appearance of goods (I'm selling shoes). It's much easier to work now. Great extension and functionality.

Fantastic - Don't go elsewhere for your color swatch extension!!!
Firstly, the support from these guys is first class - they respond quickly and actually give you good news instead of bad. Their code is excellent also.

These guys are the best, they helped me to integrate the plugin to my custom template - something which was a bit difficult. But to them, they just did I think out of the love for programming and solving problems :)

They have free plugins and obv paid ones, I am now using two of their fantastic plugins and will no doubt be looking to buy some more of them.

DON'T BUY YOUR SWATCHES PLUGIN FROM ANYWHERE ELSE - this is the best one by far. Trust me on this, this one has the most functionality and ease of use. The fact that I can let cusotmers buy from the catalog pages is obviously going to increase conversion rates.

DO INVEST IN THIS IF YOU WANT TO HAVE A BETTER CATALOGUE THAN THE COMPETITION - it's ease of use for customers will pay itself off in only a few sales.

Works great for Configurable products
When using this with configurable products the name, price, product image and description changes when the option image is clicked. This lets the customer see exactly what they are buying. Really great extension.

Can confirm it works with 1.7.2 and custom theme
I installed the plugin but it didn't work first try, this was quickly rectified by Amasty team.

I'm using a custom theme with Wordpress integration and quite a bit of custom code - the plug-in still works really well.

Awesome support, great plugin!
Easy install process. But we use an own theme, and the support team helped us really quickly. We got of every question an answer and all little problems would solved. Now we have a better user experience for our guest, like it should be. 5 stars!
