Clearing the Swatch Cache

Swatch images are resized and cached before they are used. Swatch images are stored on the server in the Magento installation directory, at the following location:

  • [Magento install directory]/media/catalog/swatches/

Whenever changes are made to existing swatch images, the swatch cache must be flushed before the changes can be seen in the store.

To flush the swatch cache:

1. On the Admin menu, select System > Cache Management.
2. In the Additional Cache Management Section, click the Flush Swatch Images Cache button.
