4- Linking color between elements in fancy product designer for products is also a very important thing. This feature will allow customers to change product color for the front and back sides at the same time. For example, a customer changes the front side color using a color picker feature the backside view color will automatically change. You have to create a code as we are doing below, copy the code, and add it to the back view base image.
NOTE: Once you added code to the back view base image then no need to add HTML color code.
