Image Focal Point is a feature which helps you choose the most important part of an image on your store. Focal points always appear in frame, even if you have a section that crops your image to fit the layout.

Some notes about Image Focal Point feature:

  • You can only have one focal point per image, but you can change it or remove it at any time.

  • You can add a focal point to an image from Shopify Settings > Files, and from Theme editor. If you add a focal point on an image, and then use the image in multiple places, then they all use the same focal point.

  • Our theme is supported for this feature. If you see the message: "This section of your theme doesn’t support focal points", you can ignore it.

Image Focal Point will not be applied in these cases:

  • The product, blog, collection images from Shopify data

  • The section with the Parallax image

  • The section with Full image or image has ratio: adapt to image

1. Add focal point from Files

Please follow this video to add a focal point to your image from Shopify > Content > Files.

2. Add focal point from Theme editor

Please follow this video to add focal point from Theme editor:

3. Add different focal points to the same image

Please notice that you can only have one focal point per image. So if you want to show more than 1 focal point to the same image on different sections or pages, you have to upload that image many times with different names.

Step 1: Upload images with different names


Step 2: Config different focal points for images in Theme Editor
