Magento Product List Gallery extension allows viewing all images of products listed in the catalog page without leaving it. When the mouse pointer rests on the item thumbnail picture, slideshow with all its other images begins. This useful front-end feature encourages visitors to browse faster and purchase more.
Let’s review these features closer.
Perfect for apparel stores, the feature gives the possibility to take a closer look at your items right on the catalog page, without unnecessary clicks and page reloads.
In admin panel, choose one of two modes: Front/Back and Slideshow. The first one helps quickly demonstrate how this or that dress or costume looks from the front and behind by switching between two pictures.
The second mode launches the slideshow with all the item images.
Configure thumbnails size and slideshow animation (enter time it takes one picture to change into another and time one picture is being displayed) for a better customer online browsing experience.
To configure the extension, navigate to System –> Configuration –> Product List Gallery.
In Thumbs area, enter thumbnails width and height. Next, select animation type and configure it.
For Slideshow, configure Delay – time between mouse pointer resting on the picture and slideshow start, Time – time it takes one picture to change into another one and Interval – time one picture is being displayed. For Front/Back, configure Delay and Time.
On catalog pages, whenever the mouse pointer rests on any product image, the slideshow starts as configured.
