Product images are essential to ensuring your customers know exactly what they're getting before they make a purchase. Find out how to manage them here.
Upload product images
An important thing to note before we get started is that you need to create a product before uploading product images.
Once this is complete, a product image can be assigned to it by following the steps below:
Navigate to the image tab from your dashboard > Catalog > Products > Select a product > Images tab.
As seen above, you can upload an image by clicking the upload button or dragging and dropping one or multiple images in for a product.
You can edit the image by:
- Cropping: Crop your image using custom dimensions, in square and circle shapes, or 16:9 and 4:3 ratios.
- Inverting: Flip a color to the opposite color, e.g., white turns into black.
- Removing the background: The platform can detect the foreground subject of the image and erases the background.
The maximum image size is 4472 x 4472 pixels with a maximum file size of up to 20 MB. Brikl supports the following image formats:
- jpg or jpeg
- gltf (standard file format for three-dimensional scenes and models)
Use 2048 x 2048 pixels for square product photos. This will ensure that your product displays well on mobile and desktop in high resolution. This also ensures that the pixel count is high enough to maintain its aesthetic when zooming in (which will show once the images are at least 800 x 800 pixels).
You can preview the images you have uploaded on your product pages by clicking preview. Make sure to activate your product first. Read more here.
Once successfully uploaded, images will be displayed like the picture in the screenshot below.
To reorder the images, click the edit sort order button to set the table in a different mode. You can change the image order in two ways:
- Changing the order number
- Dragging and dropping images
Once you’re ready, click ‘Save.’

Set a default image for products and product option values
To set the default image for the product, move your image to the first position and click ‘Save.’ Read more how to reorder images here.
To set the default image for each product option value, you can set it up by moving that image to the top of that option value.
- Here is an example, if we have five images with three options: A, B, and C, the original list will look like this:
- So the original image default option value for the option is 2B. After you rearrange the order like this:
- In this case, the option value default image will be set to 3B.

Assign an image to a color
You can assign a product's images to the same product's color option values. By doing so, you can group images by color.
When a customer selects a color, "Light Blue," for example, it will only display the images on the product page that have been associated with the color in your dashboard settings.
Color isn't selected when a customer accesses the product page for the first time. All product images will be visible until a color is selected from the dropdown field.
Display a single or multiple images
One product can contain multiple product images. You can either select them to display as a single product image or multiple product images on your storefront home page or storefront collection page.
Display a single product image
If you do not turn the Multiple Image toggle on, only the default image will be shown on your storefront home page or storefront collection page.
Display multiple product images
You can display multiple images in MicroStore homepages and collection pages by turning on the "Multiple Image" toggle. All images that have been activated will be shown on both the homepage and collection page.
