Images displayed on the product detail page feature a MAIN image that is shown in search results and is the first image displayed on the page. Additional images are called Image variants. Image variants show the product in use or in an environment, show different angles, or product features.
We recommend you provide at least six clear, informative, and attractive images. Good images make it easy for customers to evaluate the product.
When using the Image manager to upload images to your product detail page, additional pre-selected image variant types are recommended for your product based on the product category style guide. If you would like to include a variant that is not pre-selected, select the drop-down arrow icon next to the variant name to replace with another variant identifier code.
Descriptions of the different variants and their 4-character code are shown in the following table.
