Changing a product's thumbnail image

A product's thumbnail represents the item in certain areas of a site, such as product blocks, summary blocks, store pages in version 7.1 and advanced store pages in version 7.0. Thumbnail images also represent a product on social media if you don't upload an Alternate Social Sharing Images.

By default, the first image that displays in the product editor becomes the thumbnail image. Follow these steps to edit or replace a product's thumbnail image.

To set variant-specific images to appear on the product details page when shoppers browse variants, visit Product images.

Note: We recently updated the product editor, so the steps in this guide might not match what you see on your site. You can switch to the new product editor at any time, or follow the steps in Using the classic product editor if you aren’t ready to switch.
