Add custom images with metafields

To show a custom image, instead of the default collection or product image, you can use metafields in your Shopify admin.

  • Second, add custom images to this new metafield to your products or collections in the Shopify admin.

Follow the step-by-step instructions below.

Metafields allow you to add custom content and data to specific products, collections, and pages. You can then connect metafields to your templates and sections using Dynamic sources to automatically display the correct content for different parts of your store.


In your Shopify admin:

  1. Go to Settings > Custom data.

  2. Select Collections or Products.

  3. Click Add definition.

  4. In the Name field, enter Mobile menu thumbnail.

    The name must be this exact phrase. In the Namespace and key field, it will autopopulate to be custom.mobile_menu_thumbnail

  5. In Namespace and key, select custom and replace it with stiletto. It should now read as stiletto.mobile_menu_thumbnail.

  6. Click (+) Select type and select File.
