Smart Variations Images for WooCommerce


Smart Variations Images is packed with the essential features to optimize your WooCommerce product image gallery and boost your sales. It allows store customers to see different images when WooCommerce product variations are changed.

How SVI works and Setup

By default WooCommerce will only swap the main variation image when you select a product variation, not the gallery images below it.

This extension allows visitors to your online store to be able to swap different gallery images when they select a product variation.
Adding this feature will let visitors see different images of a product variation all in the same color and style.

Is it compatible with any Theme?

Yes! Themes that follow the default WooCommerce implementation will usually work with this plugin. However, some themes use an unorthodox method to add their own lightbox/slider, which breaks the hooks this plugin needs.
SVI was tested with the mos popular themes like OceanWP / Astra / Flatsome / Avada / Storefront / WR Nitro / Divi / BeTheme / Zerif Lite / Hestia / Shopisle and more.

Does it support page builders?

Yes! Although some builders take over the design and hooks of the pages running them. If you run into issues I can probably figure something out!

How do I configure it to work?

  1. Create a product and build it’s attributes & variations.
  2. Go to “SVI Variations Gallery” tab and setup the galleries according to the variations you want displayed
  3. Save the product
  4. Go to WooCommerce > SVI > Global TAB and “Enable SVI” so that is works on the Front-End
  5. Good luck with sales 🙂

What Browsers does SVI support

SVI doesn’t support IE since is no longer maintained by Microsoft since at least 2015. and it doesn’t support ecmascript. READ MORE

SVI is tested to run on:
– Microsoft EDGE
– Safari
– Chrome
– Firefox

What happens to my theme default gallery display

SVI replaces your default theme settings/options for the image & thumbnails area so don’t expect to use any of your theme features for this area.
Otherwise SVI wouldn’t be able to do the magic. Each theme has is own structure and wouldn’t be feasible to create all the available layouts combinations on the same plugin so SVI just had to build is own layout.

This plugin really elevates the look of our shop and I love how much I can customize the behavior. David was very responsive when I ran into an issue and got it resolved quickly.

I am using this on my heavily variable site and even the free version is fantastic. I highly recommend. I can't wait to see what other goodness I get with the Pro version.

If you need to add many variations, like colors and sizes to a product and want to show more than 1 image for each [color] there is NO better way to do it. It is incredible that the main features are free (thank you dev! 🙂 ), so you can see exactly what I mean. Say you have 30 color shirts with S, M, L, XL, XXL: that is like 300 variations or something. I've tried almost every 'variation gallery' out there and they are all very tedious to add the image gallery for those variations. They all require you to add the gallery for each and every variation. Like, uh...that's just terrible! THIS plugin solves that problem immediately with a very intuitive UI. Those "30" colors is all you have to worry about. Simply select the color, click ADD. Then choose the images you want for that color and BOOM that covers ALL the sizes for that color. So, instead of doing the gallery for the 300 or so variations, you only have to do it for the 30 colors. That's it! If you deal with lots of variations and need more than one image, JUST TRY IT OUT! Once I found this and saw the main feature (and saving grace) was free to use, I was instantly hooked! I'll never do it any other way again! Thanks David for creating this, SUCH a time saver for those of us with many sizes/colors of products that don't have hours [and hours] to add the images for 1 product. I will definitely be buying the PRO version in the future, to support this wonderful dev/idea/plugin 🙂 5 THUMBS UP! Anything less you're not using it right...
