Product Color Swatches 1.1.0. More Covincing… More User-Friendly…
Product Color Swatches is one of those extensions, which make the process of selecting a product in your store much easier for customers.
In our efforts to further improve the module’s capabilities we have implemented several new functionality refinements and pleased to present you the new version of this valuable extension.
Features of the Current Update
Product Images as Swatches
If a product processed by this extension contains only one attribute, you can display product images of child simple products as swatches for this very attribute.

Backend UX Improvements
Possibly, the most exciting improvement delivered by this update is the backend UX renovation. It contains several significant enhancements, which facilitate the ways to load swatch images and assign them to certain product attributes.
From now on, you can upload multiple pictures simultaneously to the right section of the Images area without any page reloads. You can also track the upload progress and get the status of uploaded images at the end of loading.
Note the Functionality: You can also drag images from your standard file manager to the right section of the Images area, which also starts the loading process.
In order to assign images to certain attribute options just drag them from the right section to the necessary empty cell of the main Images area. If you want to replace a swatch, just put the new picture over the existing one.
If necessary, you can remove an image from the main working area. For that, you should just hover the cursor over it and click the Trash Bin icon.
All changes will take effect after you save the attribute.
Display Swatches on Category Pages
Since the current versions of the extension product swatches are available on category pages. This enhancement makes its own contribution to the overall frontend usability and allows customers to use product swatches functionality on category pages without visiting products.
