After installing the extension it must be configured. The module is configured per store view. To access the configuration steps enter the Impresee Config panel located in the Impresee Search extension menu, and then select the store view that will have the visual search services available. Once there, follow the steps in the “Instructions” section to configure the extension for that specific store view. 

After configuring the extension, two buttons will appear on the site. These will be the ones in charge of triggering the search-by-image and search-by-sketch functionalities. They will be located near the search bar. By default, Impresee Visual Search module will place the buttons on the site. However, the look of these can be configured by uploading different icons or by placing the buttons on the site manually (via HTML).
