How do I use images as options for my products?

The CMS lets you combine image galleries with products to create a system that lets the customer choose a variant of your product from a collection of images. This is ideal for items that come in different colours or textures. It's also ideal for selling photography prints where each item is the same price but there are lots of different images to choose from.

Products can also have choices applied to them in conjunction with the gallery. This lets the customer choose an image along with another option. The option can include a different price. For example, you could create a 'photo print' product that has different sizes (with different prices) and a gallery to allow the selection of the image.
