Major added feature

Product images on the Product Page, Featured Product Section, and Quick Buy Modal will now be adjusted by default to fit within the screen’s height. If you want your images to be bigger, then you can still turn this off.


Shopify has changed the default height of the Image Banner from “Adapt to image size” to “medium” to better display larger images on screens. This will result in a slight visual change for themes that previously had this setting enabled. If you would like to revert the change, select the “Adapt to first image” option in the “Banner height” setting.
