I've uploaded different images for each simple product I have, depending on the color. (Not using swatches)

However, when the user selects a color from the drop down list, the product image is not changing to show the new color. Is this the default functionality? And if so, how can I change it?

your can follow that tutorial to create color switcher.

or you can get free extension from magento connect


  • Will the tutorial work if I'm not using swatches, but uploading different images for each simple product?
