Image hero split

The Image hero split section provides a highly-customizable feature for your boldest product imagery with two side-by-side hero images. Create a unique section with promotional content, multiple buttons, and comprehensive image settings.

Set up section

Add this section to any template (except Checkout) and re-order its position. You can use this section multiple times on the same page with different content and settings.

Note: New sections will appear on all pages that use the same template. To add sections to specific pages only, learn how to create and assign multiple templates.


In your theme editor (Customize):

  1. Select a Template to edit from the dropdown menu in the top bar.

  2. In the side panel, click (+) Add section and select Image hero split.

  3. Change the order of your sections by using the drag and drop handles ⋮⋮

Set up hero images

Upload two Images and fine-tune their Height, Focal point, and color Overlay or Gradient. Add a Mobile-specific image for the best results on smaller screens.


In your theme editor (Customize):

  1. Click on an Image hero split block to open the settings.

  2. Click Select image to upload and select an image file.

    There are no required images dimensions. We simply recommend uploaded images have a minimum width of 2048px for optimal quality across all devices.

  3. (Optional.) Upload a Mobile image to display only on mobile devices.

    You may want a different image that works best with mobile screen dimensions, for example a portrait shaped image.

  4. Select the Image focal point to choose which area of the image to keep centered and visible when cropping occurs.

    You can also set the Mobile image focal point for small screen sizes.

  5. Enter text for the Heading as a title overlayed on top of the image block.

  6. Enter Text for a subheading beneath the heading to say more. We recommend a short sentence or two.

    Use the formatting buttons to add bold, italic, or linked text.

  7. Select or paste a URL for the Button link.

  8. Enter text for the Button label. If left blank, the entire image will be a clickable link.

    The most effective button labels ask customers to do something (e.g. Get started, Join us, Shop now). To learn more, read "What is a Call to Action?"

  9. Select a Button style: either Solid, Outline, or Text.

    Click on the Image hero split section to find the color options for buttons.

  10. Repeat steps 1 - 6 for the second hero image block.

  11. Click Save.

    The Height is the percentage of the window height on your customer's device.

    When Custom height is set to 50%, the image will always
