If your product variants have already been set up and you just need to add variant images for these existing variants, you can skip to the adding variant images section.

Simply, all that you have to do now is upload each image and associate them with the product variants they belong to. Notably, if there already has an image paired with your product variant, you need to click on the image instead of the camera to change the image. The camera or image thumbnail is the place where you can upload a new image or select an image from your own existing images.

Moreover, you can add many variants which require the same image at the same time by selecting multiple variants on the product page. Then you use the Update images link and the Select variant images dialog box will display. At this time, changing the images for the selected product variants are available for you.
