Hi -

I’m looking at Megento for a possible client. I’ve use oscommerce and oscmax in the past and I’m looking to see what Magento has to offer.  If I’m selling shirts in various colors, is it possible to have the product image change to match the color attribute a customer selects? 

I’ve noticed that you can have additional product images displayed with a product.  Is it possible to use the zoom features on the additional product photos also?

Thanks for the assistance.

You may be able to set this up using configurable products.

This feature is not available with the current vesion of Magento. It will require some customization.

I just saw on this page—http://www.magentocommerce.com/features “multiple images with zoom” under “product browsing” it has a yellow background color.  What does that mean? 

Thanks,
Barb

I have corrected the wording on that item. It meant to say multiple images AND zoom. You may upload multiple images at any size but the zoom in feature will only be available for the image that you choose as the main image. You can see an example of this on the demo store.

Can someone from the Magento team (or the community) please explain how can configurable products be used to show the image according to the selected attributes on the frontend?
