10 Easy Image Hover Effects You Can Copy and Paste Hover effects are always a fun topic to explore. In the past, we’ve built some awesome examples of CSS hovers that were easy to copy and paste right into your code. Today, we’re going to follow that up with ten new effects specifically built for use with images. Each example comes with an HTML and CSS snippet that you can steal and a live demo so you can see it in action. Sneak Peek Before we get started, take a look at the demo below to see all of the various hover effects that we’ll be building. Demo: Click here to launch. Setup Before we begin creating the individual demos, some basic setup is required. Most of this is basic stuff: box-sizing allows us to manipulate the box model (feel free to apply more specifically if you don’t like the universal selector), and the pic class gives us a place to toss in some generic styling for each photo. Zoom and Pan Our first group of effects involves utilizing some tricks with hidden overflow. Grow Shrink Side Pan Vertical Pan Fun with Transforms Tilt Morph
Slopy Elements with CSS3 It's always a delight to see some non-straight elements in web design. Angled shapes and diagonal lines can create an interesting visual flow and add some unexpected excitement. Inspired by many superb designs that use non-straight elements, I want to show you some simple examples and ways how to create slopy, skewed elements with CSS only. View demo Download source It’s always a delight to see some non-straight elements in web design. So, let’s begin! Example 1 In our first example, we want to have a pretty normal layout with a little twist: we want a diagonal separation between the elements. The Markup Let’s create a section for our whole content and inside we’ll add some divisions with the class se-slope. Now, let’s check our the style. The CSS The body will have the same background color like all the even se-slope elements, which is pink. The divisions will all be rotated: the odd ones will be black and rotated 5 degrees and the even ones will be pink and rotated -5 degrees. Example 2
A month after switching to Macs - cd ~/jaequery The story For most of my life, I had a deep resentment toward Macs. I always never liked their concept of trying to do something different. Anyhow, I’ve grown accustomed to PCs very much. Tried Macs (several times) But because I also enjoy trying out new and shiny things, time and time I’d buy a Mac, try it out, and find myself totally weirded out by it. My PC broke hardcore Then one day, my awesome PC just died. Powering on the dusty old Mac Since I had no other choice, I powered up my Macbook Air for me to continue working. As I was on a strict deadline at work, I decided I’ll just have to use Mac for now and deal with PC later. So here are what I just didn’t like about Macs: No easy way to maximize window and full screen mode weirded me out. Since I just could not live without these, I looked hard online to see if there was anything remotely even close to how it was on PCs. I love Macs now Mac’s apps are just so much better and nicer. One big caveat about Macbook Air App recommendations
Creating Custom Form Checkboxes and Radio Buttons with Just CSS! In CSS we have many ways to style things in any way we want. When it gets to forms though, things get a little complicated. Text inputs are easy, but checkboxes and radio buttons are very difficult to style with CSS. In this tutorial I’ll show you exactly how to style these inputs and make awesome forms with just CSS! Effectively, a really good idea for styling checkboxes the only way to style checkboxes, radio buttons and drop downs is with this little piece of CSS: appearance: none; This will take all browser styles off those inputs and we can start to alter them as regular elements. It’s okay though! What we can use So what weapons can we use to create these effects? Recently there has been a bit of discussion on the web about :before and :after when using forms. To get started, lets make a few checkboxes and radio buttons. The next step is some CSS. After that we set the styles for when the user clicks on the checkbox (:active) and when the checkbox is checked. And we’re done! Update!

Autumn Leaves Cloudy Skies Nice Horsy Grassy Meadows Jigsaw Pieces Retro GrooveBack to Tutorial Filter Functionality with CSS3 Using the general sibling combinator and the :checked pseudo-class, we can toggle states of other elements by checking a checkbox or a radio button. In this tutorial we will be exploring those CSS3 properties by creating a experimental portfolio filter that will toggle the states of items of a specific type. View demo Download source The idea is inspired by Roman Komarov’s brilliant “Filtering elements without JS” experiment where he uses checkboxes and radio buttons for filtering colored shapes. The beautiful Dribbble shots used in the demos are by Mike from Creative Mints. The Markup Let’s start with the markup. The unordered list will contain all the portfolio items as anchors with an image and a span. The CSS We’ll be going through three example effects, but first, let’s take a look at the common style. I will omit all the vendor prefixes, but you will, of course, find them in the files. The main section container will have a specific width: Let’s move on to the item list: Example 1 Example 2

Awesome Overlays with CSS3's Border-Image Property - ZURB Playground - ZURB.com What's the big deal? These overlays use a number of new CSS properties, some of which are simple like border-radius and using RGBa colors. The trick with these overlays is the gradient border, going form a lighter to darker orange as you go from top to bottom. To create that effect we used to the border-image property, which is a tricky little addition to CSS. How to use border-image The border-image property is tricky in the way it takes a single image and turns it into a complete object border for any sized element. What can potentially screw things up is that it takes the center section and stretches it across your entire object. This is a sketch of how the browser cuts up your image into the border-image elements... ...and this is the image we're using (enlarged), and how each piece becomes an edge to our overlay object. The rest of the syntax The first part of the syntax is simply the path to the image you'll be using. url(/images/awesome-overlays/border-image.png) 5 5 5 5 stretch;
