If you want to use this feature, you must configure Alt text for all thumbnail images from all products, so consider whether or not to use this feature as it will be very time consuming. We are not sure if there is a third application that will allow this in bulk but we will continue to update here.
This is a feature that allows you to show a correct image for each variant, for example when you active color Cyan, the image, and thumbnails will show the Cyan color only instead show all thumbnails. In order to use this option Go to Theme settings > Product Page > Product Features > Enable/Disable Group Variant Image.
If you want to show this option, you must set it on Shopify Admin first. Please follow these steps:

Step1: Translate Products options and Product Variants.
You must install a translation app first. In this article, we highly recommend T-Lab app. Please follow this document to install and configure:
After installing and integrating successfully, please go to Translate App > Translate Product Variants and Product Options.
Step 2: Change Alt tags for images
- From Shopify admin > Go to Products > Choose a product that you wanna add variants.
- Scroll down to Media > Add Alt tags for images, you must add them by ordering numbers.
About ordering numbers: They are very important to show group image variants for products in many other languages. The ordering number is automatically definite from “0”. This is an example:
As shown in the image above, we can see the name of options (Color, size) is a group, the sub-elements in each option are a group. Then, we have two other groups here (They are White, Pink; and 35, 36, 37). Each group is ordered by numbers, which start from “0”.
- Enter “t4option” number of option (color/size)”_” number of sub-element (Pink, White, 35, 36, 37)”. For example, please look at the picture above, I want to add a tag for images with variant “White color”. The tag will be t4option0_0, and the tag for Pink variant images will be t4option0_1.
