In Magento 2.1, I need to add manufacturer's logo in product detail page. Now, I added an attribute manufacturer from the backend.

I did that by going to Stores -> Attribute set then choosing Default. then there was two Unassigned Attributes, Color and Manufacturer. I dragged manufacturer into Product Details under Groups. Now I have a dropdown list at the backend's product catalog page (Product -> catalog -> edit/add the product ).

Now I need to implement when I choose a manufacturer from that dropdown, in that product's, product detail page manufacturer image should be displayed.

How do I accomplish that?

Create a module for this task.

Store all your Manufacturer images at path Company/Module/view/frontend/web/images/ with the exact name of menufacturer.

Then, you need to override template file for the product page and get Manufacturer Label in that template file:

$menufacturer = $_product->getResource()->getAttribute('manufacturer')->getFrontend()->getValue($_product);

Then, you can insert image like this:

<img src='<?php echo $this->getViewFileUrl('Company_Module::images/' . $menufacturer . '.png'); ?>' alt="<?php echo $menufacturer ?>" width="30" height="25">

I've accomplished this without creating a module. Hope this may help somebody

  1. I created a custom product attribute. which allows the user to choose a manufacturer from the dropdown list.
  2. I get image from app->design>[my vendor]->[my theme]->web->images->products, and image name will be equal to name selected from above dropdown.
  3. Added layout in XML where I need this image should be.
  4. used phtml file to locate images and display.


From admin menu, Stores->Attributes->product

Create a new attribute. Default Label(your name), Catalog Input Type for Store Owner(dropdown), Values Required(No). under Manage Options (Values of Your Attribute) you can add your options.


You can choose any location as you need.


This could be different for your needs,

<referenceContainer name="product.details.section" >
<container name="brand.logo" htmlTag="div" htmlClass="right-brand" before="-">
     <block class="Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\View" name="customBrandLogo" template="product/view/custombrandlogo.phtml"/>


in my case, phtml file is custombrandlogo.phtml located at Magento_Catalog->templates->product->view

I get manufacturer name from backend menu,

 $_product = $this->getProduct();
 $manufacturerName = $_product->getAttributeText('manufacturer');
 $manufacturerId = $_product->getManufacturer(); 
//php close tag will be at the end

I convert the name into lowercase and replace underscores with spaces.

$manufacturerName= strtolower($manufacturerName);

$manufacturerName=str_replace(' ', '_',$manufacturerName);

I get image path

$imgPath=$this->getViewFileUrl("{$imgPath}/{$manufacturerName}" ); 

//php tag is closed?>

_Finally display an image with img tag.

<img class="img-responsive" src="<?php echo  $imgPath ?>.png" alt="<?php echo $manufacturerName; ?>" /></a>

I hardcoded image extension as .png

<?php/***********Display Brand Attribute in detail page************/?>

                $objectManager = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
                $category = $objectManager->get('Magento\Framework\Registry')->registry('current_category');//get current category

                $brand_value = $_product->getResource()->getAttribute('manufacturer')->getFrontend()->getValue($_product);
                $brand_id = $_product->getManufacturer();
                $curnt_cat_url = $category->getUrl();
                $brandId = '?manufacturer='.$brand_id;

                $om = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
                $swatchCollection = $om->create('Magento\Swatches\Model\ResourceModel\Swatch\Collection');
                $ThumbImage =  $swatchHelper->getSwatchAttributeImage('swatch_thumb', $item->getValue());
                $SwatchImage = $swatchHelper->getSwatchAttributeImage('swatch_image', $item->getValue());


                <div class="brand_bg">
                    <a href="<?php echo $curnt_cat_url.$brandId; ?>" title="<?php echo $brand_value; ?>" ><img src="<?php echo $ThumbImage; ?>"></a>
            <?php } ?>
            <?php/***********End Brand Attribute************/?>
