Smart Variations Images & Swatches is packed with the essential features to optimize your WooCommerce product image gallery and boost your sales.
Stop uploading the same images for each Variation Gallery! SVI allows you to start working smarter, not harder!
How SVI works and Setup
By default WooCommerce will only swap the main variation image when you select a product variation, not the gallery images below it.
This extension allows visitors to your online store to be able to swap different gallery images when they select a product variation.
Adding this feature will let visitors see different images of a product variation all in the same color and style.
SVI now allows you to replace dropdown fields for your variable products with swatches. Using color, image or labels swatches provides a much nicer way to display variations of a product.

Is it compatible with any Theme?
Yes! Themes that follow the default WooCommerce implementation will usually work with this plugin. However, some themes use an unorthodox method to add their own lightbox/slider, which breaks the hooks this plugin needs.
SVI was tested with the mos popular themes like OceanWP / Astra / Flatsome / Avada / Storefront / WR Nitro / Divi / BeTheme / Zerif Lite / Hestia / Shopisle and more.
Does it support page builders?
Yes! Although some builders take over the design and hooks of the pages running them. If you run into issues I can probably figure something out!
How do I configure it to work?
- Create a product and build it’s attributes & variations.
- Go to “SVI Variations Gallery” tab and setup the galleries according to the variations you want displayed
- Save the product
- Go to WooCommerce > SVI > Global TAB and “Enable SVI” so that is works on the Front-End
- Good luck with sales 🙂

What Browsers does SVI support
SVI doesn’t support IE since is no longer maintained by Microsoft since at least 2015. and it doesn’t support ecmascript. READ MORE
SVI is tested to run on:
– Microsoft EDGE
What happens to my theme default gallery display
SVI replaces your default theme settings/options for the image & thumbnails area so don’t expect to use any of your theme features for this area.
Otherwise SVI wouldn’t be able to do the magic. Each theme has is own structure and wouldn’t be feasible to create all the available layouts combinations on the same plugin so SVI just had to build is own layout.
