Change portfolio grid images to greyscale which revert to full colour on hover

Go to solution Solved by Ziggy,

Recommended Posts


I have the 'Grid: Overlay' layout option selected on my portfolio page. I would like the thumbnail images to start as greyscale and return to full colour on when hovered.

Additionally i would like the grid to be full width. Currently there is a slight border even with 'width: full' selected.

Is there some simple custom CSS to do this?

Thank you in advance!

Yes, use this Custom CSS:

.portfolio-grid-overlay .grid-item .grid-image {
  filter: grayscale(1);
  transition:ease-in-out 300ms;
.portfolio-grid-overlay .grid-item:hover {
  .grid-image {
    filter: grayscale(0);
