OpenCart products include options that can be applied when added to the shop inventory.  These options can range in function from a date field to an image file.  Options can also be added through the Administration interface.  The following OpenCart 1.5 tutorial shows you how to add or edit product options in OpenCart 1.5

Managing Product Options in OpenCart 1.5

  1. Login to the Administration Dashboard as an Administrator
  2. Hover over the word CATALOG in the menu bar and select OPTIONS when the drop-down menu appears.  You will see the following screen:

  4. After naming the option, select the TYPE from the drop-down menu as per the screen below:

  5. The SORT ORDER option is actually used to determine how the option will appear on the product.  If you wish for the option to appear at the beginning, then set the sort order to '0'.  Otherwise, set it to a higher number per the position you wish it to appear. 
  6. The final field that can be added to the OPTION is the option value.  Option value must have a name (OPTION VALUE NAME in the screenshot below), and can be set to an image.opencart15-catalog-options-optionvalue
  7. Once you have set all of the values for your OPTION, select SAVE in order to save your entries
