Can you create swatches with color or images?

Yes, you can create both color and image swatches.

1. Create a new option

Click the "Create option" button on the main page or the "Create new option" button on the option set page than choose the "Image swatch" or "Color swatch" type

2. Name your option and add images/colors to it

Add a name to the option in the "Option name" field. The option name is what the customer can customize with this option (eg.: Color). The name provided here is what the customer will see on the storefront.

Add colors or images in the "Option values" section by clicking the drop zone. Next to the image/color add a "Value title" which will be visible below the image/color if the customer hovers over it on the storefront.

3. (Optional) Set additional settings for the option and values
