    ok, so I'm looking for a someone that does coding for online stores for
    products that are customizable. *Sort of like when you go to an auto
    website and you can order a car and choose options like color, and then
    it'll show the image of the car in whatever color you chose, or when you order food online at places like 5 Guys or chipotle.

    *I'm lost as to what "kind" of programmer that is (php, java, etc)...was
    wondering if anyone could give me some direction into the what kind of programming language the person I'm looking for needs to be efficient in...thanks!

    There's a variety of approaches, but generally it simply involves taking pictures of each configuration and then swapping them using something like JavaScript when the option is chosen. For more complex things like food ordering, they overlay a variety of images on each other.
