The home page features a banner image and caption that allows you to feature special promotions.
Your collection pages can also display banner images at the top of the collection page, and on any products that belong to the collection. This allows you to create themed areas within your store.
To create a banner image for a collection, you just need to upload an image called "banner.jpg" to the collection page. Images should be at least 2048px wide. The image is so large because it is displayed using a parallax effect.
The title and any text are overlaid on top of the banner image, so it should be dark enough and clean enough for the text to show up.
To upload your image, follow the instructions below.
Please Note: In this theme, any collection image that you upload with the word banner in it that is not named correctly as just banner.jpg will break your collection page banner and the banners of any product pages that belong to the collection. If you are seeing any unusual behaviour, then you should make sure you haven't uploaded any collection images with the word banner in their name
