Comparison Slider – Per Product Settings

To configure before / after slider images on a per product basis, navigate to Products > All Products > Your Before/After Slider Product > Before / After Slider. A new image upload panel will appear on the right-hand side of the product edit page (in the admin area).

  • Before Image: The “before” image is usually the original image of the product/service before purchase or application.
  • After Image: The “after” image is usually the new image of the product/service after your product was purchased or applied.

Note: For best results, we recommend both before and after images have the same dimensions.


Before / After Slider Usage

On the single product page (on the front-end), customers will see a before / after comparison slider when the following conditions are met:

Images

  • A “Before” image has been uploaded on the image upload panel outlined under “Per Product Settings”
  • An “After” image has been uploaded.

Labels

  • The before / after labels will only appear when hovering over the comparison slider. These labels will fade out as soon as the drag-action is started.
