hard to fit pictures may be easily accomodated.
Thumbnails by Department
Based on the storefront theme you select, each department has its own
index table of products pictured in thumbnail proportions. Each product thumbnail
has a product name and may include other variables that you select.
Our online inventory system offers a great deal of flexibility to define
unique product variables. Products may be offered in various sizes, flavors or other
