Add this to your Custom CSS:

.sqs-image-content {
  opacity:1;
  transition:ease-in-out 300ms;
  &:hover {
    opacity:0.6;
  }
}

Adjust the opacity 0.6 to any value between 0 and 1.

Hope that's what you're looking for! Give me a thumbs up if you can, thanks!

Any way to make the image go lighter rather than darker?

The effect is for opacity, so will go lighter or darker depending on the underlying color, likely the section background.

You could use this instead:

.sqs-image-content {
  filter:brightness(1);
  transition:ease-in-out 300ms;
  &:hover {
    filter:brightness(0.5);
  }
}

Let me know if you prefer that.

This is the one I ended up using:

img {
  -webkit-transition: all 0.1s ease;
  transition: all 0.5s ease;
}
.gallery-grid-item img:hover {
filter: brightness(109%)
}

It works really well as I needed it to work on the gallery block. Thanks so much though!

Hi!! sorry to bump this, is there a way to apply this effect to only images that are links? 

Try this new code. If it doesn't work, please share link to page where you use image, we can check easier

.sqs-image-content a {
  opacity:1;
  transition:ease-in-out 300ms;
  &:hover {
    opacity:0.6;
  }
}

I'm trying to get this effect with an image that has a text block on top of it. The issue is that the text block blocks the cursor and the hover doesn't register on the image. 

I tried doing it so that the text block contains the link, and has a background enabled, then applying the css to the text block's background color/opacity. The problem here is that the link is only on the text, so when someone clicks any area of the image that isn't the text, the link doesn't register, even if if image itself is linked. 

Then I tried making the text block smaller so that the image link will be exposed around it, but then that creates a deadzone between the image and the text where there is no link to click.

Any suggestions?

Can you share link? We can try some code to make whole block clickable

Hi! I'm wondering if you could try this on my site, I'm struggling with the exact same issue that on hover my images change opacity but when you hover on the title the hover effect on the image dissapears and the text is unreadable.

 

My url is www.tessadoet.com

First, make text block cover whole image

Next, add this word clickable with link to bottom of your Text Block

Next, add this code to Code Injection > Footer

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.7.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script>
$(document).ready(function(){
    $('.fe-block a:contains("clickable")').addClass('text-click');
});
</script>
<style>
.text-click {
    position: absolute;
    top: 0;
    left: 0;
    width: 100%;
    height: 100%;
}
.text-click, .text-click * {
    color: transparent !important;
}
</style>

Hey guys, the above code wasn't working for me - I want gallery block images that are click through links to have some sort of hover effect and leave images that aren't links out of the equation. Any help? Site is still set to private:

Your site is private, you can follow this guide to share correct url
