Today I will tell you how to create different CSS3 image hover effects. I hope that you still remember our old tutorial. We used JavaScript there. Today I will try to make something similar using pure CSS3. In the resulting gallery page, we will have 9 images, each of them having its own hover effect.

Ok, download the example files and lets start !


Step 1. HTML

First, let's prepare the main HTML markup for our demo gallery. As you can see – the resulting structure is quite easy. Here are set of DIV objects. Each of them contains one image and some virtual mask (DIV). The last element will contain two masks.

index.html

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en" >
    <head>
        <meta charset="utf-8" />
        <title>CSS3 Image Hover Effects | Script Tutorials</title>
        <link href="css/layout.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
        <link href="css/gall.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
    </head>
    <body>
        <header>
            <h2>CSS3 Image Hover Effects</h2>
            <a href="http://www.script-tutorials.com/css3-image-hover-effects/" class="stuts">Back to original tutorial on <span>Script Tutorials</span></a>
        </header>

        <!-- panel with buttons -->
        <div class="photos">
            <div>
                <img src="images/pic1.jpg" />
                <div></div>
            </div>
            <div>
                <img src="images/pic2.jpg" />
                <div></div>
            </div>
            <div>
                <img src="images/pic3.jpg" />
                <div></div>
            </div>
            <div>

                <div></div>
            </div>
            <div>
                <img src="images/pic5.jpg" />
                <div></div>
            </div>
            <div>

                <div></div>
            </div>
            <div>

                <div></div>
            </div>
            <div>
                <img src="images/pic8.jpg" />
                <div></div>
            </div>
            <div class="pair">
                <img src="images/pic9.jpg" />
                <div></div>
                <div></div>
            </div>
        </div>
    </body>
</html>

Step 2. CSS

I omit styles of layout.css. Here are nothing interesting. The most interesting – next one file (where I have prepared all necessary styles of our gallery):

css/gall.css

.photos {
    width: 945px;
    height: 400px;
    margin: 100px auto;
    position:relative;
}
.photos > div {
    background-color: rgba(128, 128, 128, 0.5);
    border: 2px solid #444;
    float: left;
    height: 100px;
    margin: 5px;
    overflow: hidden;
    position: relative;
    width: 300px;
    z-index: 1;

    -webkit-border-radius: 10px;
    -moz-border-radius: 10px;
    -ms-border-radius: 10px;
    -o-border-radius: 10px;
    border-radius: 10px;

    -webkit-transform:scale(1.0);
    -moz-transform:scale(1.0);
    -ms-transform:scale(1.0);
    -o-transform:scale(1.0);
    transform:scale(1.0);

    -webkit-transition-duration: 0.5s;
    -moz-transition-duration: 0.5s;
    -ms-transition-duration: 0.5s;
    -o-transition-duration: 0.5s;
    transition-duration: 0.5s;
}
.photos > div img{
    width: 100%;
}
.photos > div:hover{
    z-index: 10;

    -webkit-transform:scale(2.0);
    -moz-transform:scale(2.0);
    -ms-transform:scale(2.0);
    -o-transform:scale(2.0);
    transform:scale(2.0);
}
.photos > div div {
    background: url(../images/hover.gif) repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;
    cursor: pointer;
    height: 100%;
    left: 0;
    opacity: 0.5;
    position: absolute;
    top: 0;
    width: 100%;
    z-index: 15;

    -webkit-transition-duration: 0.5s;
    -moz-transition-duration: 0.5s;
    -ms-transition-duration: 0.5s;
    -o-transition-duration: 0.5s;
    transition-duration: 0.5s;
}
.photos > div:nth-child(1):hover div {
    height: 0%;
}

.photos > div:nth-child(2):hover div {
    height: 0%;
    margin-top: 100px;
}
.photos > div:nth-child(3):hover div {
    width: 0%;
}
.photos > div:nth-child(4):hover div {
    margin-left: 300px;
    width: 0%;
}
.photos > div:nth-child(5):hover div {
    height: 0%;
    margin-left: 150px;
    margin-top: 50px;
    width: 0%;
}
.photos > div:nth-child(6):hover div {
    margin-left: 150px;
    width: 0%;
}
.photos > div:nth-child(7):hover div {
    height: 0%;
    margin-left: 150px;
    margin-top: 50px;
    width: 0%;

    -webkit-transform: rotateX(360deg);
    -moz-transform: rotate(360deg);
    -ms-transform: rotate(360deg);
    -o-transform: rotate(-360deg);
    transform: rotate(-360deg);
}
.photos > div:nth-child(8):hover div {
    height: 0%;
    margin-left: 150px;
    margin-top: 50px;
    width: 0%;

    -webkit-transform: rotateZ(600deg);
    -moz-transform: rotateZ(600deg);
    -ms-transform: rotateZ(600deg);
    -o-transform: rotateZ(600deg);
    transform: rotateZ(600deg);
}
.photos > div.pair div {
    width: 50%;
}
.photos > div.pair div:nth-child(odd) {
    margin-left: 150px;
}
.photos > div.pair:hover div {
    width: 0%;
}
.photos > div.pair:hover div:nth-child(odd) {
    margin-left: 300px;
}
