Adding product media

You can add up to 250 images, 3D models, or videos to a product.

The first media item for each product is known as the featured, or main, media item. The main media item is shown on collection pages, the cart page, the checkout page, and your home page.

Adding product media by using metafields

If you want to customize the way that product media are displayed in your online store, then you can use metafields to create a file reference metafield for your products. File reference metafields support uploading images to display your products, or all other file types for your customers to download. You can display images in JPEG, PNG, and GIF formats in your online store. A metafield can contain only one file at a time.

If you have an Online Store 2.0 theme, such as Dawn, the free Shopify theme, then you can connect file reference metafields to your theme by using the theme editor. If you're using vintage themes, then you can edit your theme code or hire a Shopify Expert to help you.
