  • You can upload a maximum of 300 main images, and it is recommended to use images with dimensions of 750 x 750 pixels for the best display quality. Files that are too small may result in blurry images.
  • After clicking on a variant and displaying the variant image, the main product photo cannot be displayed again. If you wish to display the main product photo, it's recommended to include the main product photo in each variant image.
