Working with Swatches

You can define swatches for variation products. A swatch image typically shows the key difference between variation products in relation to a product variation attribute. These are some examples:

Swatches are represented as a special view type together with image variants, and are maintained per product master. Typically, there is only one swatch image per view type/variant combination and no stacked swatch images. This is because even though products might have the same color code, the actual color tone might be different. Swatches don't always represent color codes, but instead, might represent highly zoomed detail images of the fabric. In this case, the swatches for red T-shirts, red knit dresses, and red silk scarves will differ. By representing a swatch as a view type, every color variant can provide the required swatch image.
