Upload the file structure to your installation directory
Under Product > Options > Edit or Product > Options > Insert > Add Option Value
there will be two new fields, Alias and colour Hash. Both are optional.
For a colour to be displayed, the Colour Hash field must contain a valid Hex Colour
or a CSS recognised colour
Alias is used in admin area only and is to help identify between similar shades of colours.
For example, You could use Option Value Name red as 4 seperate options, but use 4 different shades depending on the product, by entering a differend Colour Hash.
Once the options are assigned to a product, they will begin to appear on the category page as a colour block with your specified colour.
Colour values are now cached, if new colours are added to a product you will need to either remove the colours.* cache file for that product, or wait for the cache to expire, (1 hour on unmodified carts)
