I have many products that have a different image depending on the attribute color.
How do I make the relevant image (of the simple product) appear on selection of that color attribute in its dropdown when I view the configurable product in the catalog.
I started to work on this myself and got it working… though not exactly as I wanted. For now it requires manual uploads of images with a set naming convention. But as I change the attributes of the configurable product with the drop downs it updates the image if there is one matching the based on the specs. It is a bit of a hack job… and not at all maintainable with newer versions of Magento that will be coming.
I am sure this is something that will be worked on later rather than sooner as there are far more pressing issues to deal with.
