Gala Color Swatches Free
Fully Working just follow the Procedure properly
The extension works properly as it should. Been using the Gala Gomarket theme with Magento version 1.9 and its working properly.
Even with these current settings I have.
css and java a re minified and merged
using CDN with amazon aws cloudfront
and no errors...
just 1 thing, when installed, a new directory in /media will be created as "color_swatches" but front end will ask for /media/swatches" instead of /media/color_swatches" so just edit the name of the swatch folder to "swatches" and make sure to upload all swatch images to 666 permission to be accessible.
That's all and everything will follow. +1 for this extension and +1 as well for the maker and the theme Gala GoMarket!

I thought it's too good to be true, but...
It's really true and it's absolutely 100% Free. I'm using Magent 1.8.1 and it's working without errors. It's really really free and easy to use. Never spend another dollar to convert your dropdown custom attribute options to swatches again. :D

Nice extension, immediate support
Extension works as described on ver 1.8.1.
Support is really fast and gave me solutions within 12hours after my request. They also help me refine my css to adapt the extension.

Works, but needs refinement
This extension does it's job without overriding existing functionality, though extensive modifications could cause it to not work properly. No notice about the copyright addition is unfortunate, but easily solved with a local.xml layout update.

Doesn't add the product to the cart ?
Well it shows everything as described but didn't add the product to the cart,
Whenever I tried adding to the cart it always shows an pop up with the error
"Please specify the product's option(s)."

Really good for free version + how to remove copyright
Really simple, just what I needed. Works perfect!
IMPORTANT: Saw many people complain about the copyright, and indeed this was my only negative point as well. But I found a solution...
TO REMOVE COPYRIGHT:
Go to: App/Design/Frontend/base/default/layout
Edit the file: "em_colorswatches.xml"
Find and delete the following piece of text and your done:
<block type="core/text" name="galathemes.copy">
<action method="setText"><text><![CDATA[<p style="text-align:center;font-size:0.8em"><a style="color:inherit;text-decoration:none" href="http://galathemes.com/magento-extensions/color-swatches.html">Color Swatches Magento extension</a> by Galathemes <a style="color:inherit;text-decoration:none" href="http://galathemes.com/">Magento Themes</a></p>]]></text></action>

Fix in settings.phtml for support of configurable products
// remove price
if opt.getAttribute('price')) key = trim(key.replace(/[\+|\-]([^+]+)$/, ''));

It works, but it needs changes in code to work on IE 9
If you want to make it work on all browsers (including IE 9) using Magento 1.7 / 1.8, open the file app/design/frontend/base/default/template/em_colorswatches/settings.phtml and replace the fireEvent function with this below:
var evt = document.createEvent("HTMLEvents");
evt.initEvent(event, true, true ); // event type,bubbling,cancelable
It worked for me.
