    Everybody wants to see how any product looks like in specific color or design or shape. Yes, with a few tricks you can make Magento to show different colors for products but that’s all. When you have specific designs (for dresses for example) it is not possible to do with standard Magento tools.

    Magento Color Swatch is extension for configurable products that gives you possibility to show how your product look in different colors, shapes, designs.. It doesn't affect any standard functionality in Magento, just extend standard options.

    Although Color Swatch extension works with any zoom script, neither of them are made to switch images after page loads. As we had many requests from our customers to support different zoom tools for Magento, we decided to make things easier. We developed our own Zoom that works by default with Color Swatches. Further more, you can enable/disable zoom from admin pages as well as customize look and feel. Our script is not based on jQuery or Prototype script so you don't need to install any additional scripts or plugins.


    - change product images (including prices) on the fly
    - can be used on one or many product attributes
    - one configurable product can use more than one different attribute
    - use any image size for thumbnails
    - option to hide select box for Magento Color Swatch attribute
    - integrated Zoom Tool
    - easy to install an use without specific PHP knowledge
    - robust administration


    Easy to install and customize!
    Administration has many options that you can use to fine tune look and feel of your shop.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Extension / Amazing Developer! I sell highly customized products with many variations to choose from. I needed an extension that would display these options in a professional, elegant way. This extension does that beautifully. I couldn't be more happy with the level of customization that's available within the module. Furthermore the support from the developer, SMDesign has been fantastic. They are responsive and very accommodating. I highly recommend this extension, but if you are looking at any of their other extensions, I can personally attest to SMDesign's superior customer service.

    Rated out of 5 by from Absolutely superb. Functionality similar to big name sites. Support second to none - I've had 2 issues one of which was my mail server stripping out js files from the downloaded extension, second due to a conflict with Simple Configurable Products, for which a patch was quickly (in minutes) sent out. Top notch!

    Rated out of 5 by from This is a great extension with a great support team. Not only does it work as intended, but the support team assisted us with a deep-rooted PRCE library issue that affected our dev server and not our local.

    Rated out of 5 by from I've had this extension working for some time, however I'd love to add color swatches through the back end, but have not been able to... I have to load all color swatches through a php script, which is very cumbersome and heavy to imput everything into a spread sheet and import... The developers first appeared willing to assist, but we never connected on their time, so nothing happened. I still have an open ticket with them to see why the back end it not functioning properly....

    Rated out of 5 by from We purchased this extension and it works amazingly! Had the team customize it to our needs and their support is awesome.
