Slideshow

The Slideshow displays auto-rotating slides to showcase your product images. You can fine-tune how your images look, all slide headings and colors, and add a mobile-specific image for the best experience across all devices.

Set up section

Add this section to any template (except Checkout) and use the drag-and-drop handles to re-order its position. You can add this section multiple times with different content and settings.

Note | Editing a template changes all pages that use that template. To edit specific pages, you can create new templates or use metafields and dynamic sources.
