Amasty Info

Please find full description, live demo and user guide at Magento Color Swatches Pro with Zoom module page

Improve product presentation to deserve customers' trust.


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

color swatch magento

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.

new!Automatically use price of associated simple products, get rid of manual input of price difference.

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.

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.

Convince your customers you are the one they should deal with by showing them products in detail without hiding anything.

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.

new!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.

magento color swatches

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.

new! Specify a default placeholder image for each attribute.

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

new!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.

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


magento configurable product images

  • 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.
  • NEW!Display Color Swatches with AJAX mode to speed up category pages download (in comparison to "default" extension settings).
  • NEW!Enable Reindex option to improve category pages performance.

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.

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.

magento color swatches

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.
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.
  • NEW!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
new!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.

new! 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.

Also the extension:


  • is easy to use
  • meets all Magento development practices
  • is 100% Open Source
  • is easy to install (takes just a couple minutes)

    Color Swatches Pro by Amasty 4.9 5 42 42
    Works perfectly Easy to install, works as described, had one problem with my version of magento (compatibility with the extension) contacted support and they fixed the problem. Amazing support. June 27, 2014
    Great extension and great support Very useful extension ! Work great. It's easly cusomisable and the support is very reagent. June 3, 2014
    Perfect - Just what I had been looking for!! Easy to install, and exactly what I had been looking for, a way for potential customers to easily select a configurable product by the use of simple images. 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. Well done guys!! May 27, 2014
    Very good extension, even better support! I purchased this extension for its zooming and carousel features. There was also a determinant factor of choice on the reputation I read about it. I had few minor issues which where promptly solved by developer support even during their holidays! May 15, 2014
    Grate Support for Extension I used Color Swatches for my site. It's works good for me. And there is a Great and Quick Support. Thanks Amasty. March 21, 2014
    The Extension is great but the support is even greater! If you want to make life easier for your customers. Buy the Color Swatches Pro Extension. It works like a charm! And when there is something that you don't get, don't worry. The support is even better than the extension itself. For example: there was something I wanted to add to the extension and they implement it for me. I'm very pleased by the support of the Amasty team! Thanks guys! I would recommend this plugin for the full 5 stars. December 24, 2013
    Be Careful - Several Issues We purchased this extension and found several issues with it off the bat. On product pages, the switching of product photos was slow when you click on swatches. Sometimes, it would get confused and show the default photo, then the right photo one second later without click anything. At other times, it wouldn't load the right product photo - and it would all be random. One minute it would work, the next it wouldn't. We really felt this made our user experience less-than-optimal. Our biggest issue is that this extension is not compatible with their Layered Navigation extension, a fantastic extension for Magento. They thought it was, but swatches would not appear when filtering with AJAX enabled, another must. After 2 weeks of going back and forth, they finally said that their developer could not figure out what the issue was, and refunded our money. If you have a simple site without AJAX navigation, this will probably work. If you have multiple attribute like color and material, you will have product photo loading time issues. They did issue a full refund, which is why we gave 3 stars. December 11, 2013
    Excellent Extension This Extension functions exactly as specified. The support team is helpful in resolving all issues and actually did a great job with quick customization of extension functionality. November 21, 2013
    Great Customer Service I had some problems to customize this extension, but the support helped me a lot. thank you October 31, 2013
    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. October 29, 2013

    Hi,
    The hat with logo demo is similar to the functionality we need, but as a bundle. We have a product that is comprised of two different parts. The customer can select which color they want for each part and we'd like to display a preview of what that looks like together. However, the parts are separate skus and need to be added to the cart individually - hence, the bundle.

    Thanks!
    Sarah

    yes, you can. To do this you should enable the Lightbox in the backend settings, and it will work for the main image on click.

    We've installed your Color Swatch extension and it's working nicely so far, but there's a bug:

    When you click any of the swatches, all is fine *unless* there's more than one row of swatches and a shopper clicks the last swatch on a row. The swatch rows become mangled until you then click a swatch that's not on the end of a row. The extension does this on all browsers and devices.

    What is the fix for this issue?

    Details:
    Magento 1.8.1
    Color Swatches Pro 3.8.6

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    I'm running into a bug where when I click a thumbnail image, it quickly generates 4 more <img id="amasty-zoom"> with the width and height set to that of the preview image directly below the preview image before they quickly disappear. If you have any idea what might be causing this or where I can find it, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!
