How To: Add Extra Images To Products

  • Go to Metafield Configuration and click "Add Metafield" under product.

  • Enter "image-1" for metafield handle, then select "Image" from the dropdown menu. Repeat this process but change the name of the metafield handle to "image-#" for each additional image that you want to add. For this example we will use 3 additional images. Your configuration should look similar to the screenshot below:

    Click Save Configuration and click Go Back to Homepage.

  • Find the product you want to add metafields to. You can do this in 2 different ways.

    One way is through the metafields app. Click on Add Metafields. Then select Product from the dropdown menu and click Search.

    The other way is through the Shopify dashboard. Navigate the product as you normally would through the shopify dashboard (click Products find the product you want to edit and click the link.). Once you're on the product page in the Shopify dashboard, click the "..." button on the top right and select Add Metafields to Product.
