The support was outstanding. It’s hard to find these days where the support on a free plug-in will get back to you promptly let alone at all. They could have just told me to upgrade to their premium plug-in in order to get the features I wanted but instead helped me with some code to make it work. Such as getting a larger border around the selected one and making it compatible with my product bundles plug-in. I love the image variation as it makes it so much easier for clients when placing an order. Versus clicking on a drop down. Great job guys!
