I think what you want is this. Copy and paste Into custom CSS a img.thumb-image:hover { background-color: #ffffff; opacity: 0.6;} This should give you a translucent white background on hover. Adjus

@brysonprice:

From the research I've done, this is what seems to me to be the case.

CSS can be used to change an image on hover when CSS has been used to set the non-hover image in the first place. This makes sense. What you do with CSS you can change with CSS.

However, in your template the image you want to change on hover is not created by CSS. It's set by the HTML code of the template. It's "hard-coded," so to speak, and, so far as I understand, CSS can't be used to substitute another image in its place.

I'm a retired attorney who was asked by a friend to build a website. In a prior lifetime, in a galaxy far, far away and long, long ago, I was a computer systems analyst / programmer. I'm a novice autodidact in CSS, JavaScript and HTML learning in part by example.. I've asked questions on this forum and been lucky enough to have others help me, so I'm inclined to answer any question I can. Pay it forward.

^ continued:

The CSS code you found at CSS Hover Effects is an example of using CSS to change what CSS has done in the first place.

If what you're intent upon doing is substituting a different image on hover, JavaScript can probably do it but I don't think I can help because I don't know JavaScript.

If instead you want to apply one of the hover effects found at Hover.css to the image that's already there, I can help.

The example @Bernard West coded for you above works because the image called by the HTML code is color to start with. Your social icon images are black and white to start with and I don't know of a way to use CSS to add color where it doesn't exist to begin with.

Well, we'd have to customise it for your particular page. If you want to use that effect, let us know which page(s), and I'll write some code for you. But you'll need to provide coloured images as the base images. Your social icons are currently black and white.

Absolutely. But you need to tell me which effect you want to do and create/upload the appropriate images and give links to all the relevant pages/links. Did you see this new example? - http://jsbin.com/fejakuluna/1/edit?html,css,js,output

I'm off to India for a month in a week. So I've only got a couple more days I can help you, then I'll be too busy getting ready. So you need to hurry up if you want my help. ;)

In amongst all the other tricks and code provided, I worked with Bryson via email to do an "invert" effect on his contact page. Very simple, but I didn't happen to find an IE work around. I have an nearly up to date IE and the effect doesn't work in there. He'll need to google, or better yet, ask at StackOverflow or the like for some code that he can append that will work with IE.

Here's the invert CSS code that needs to be inserted into the header of that page:


<style>
 .thumb-image:hover {
       filter: invert(100%) !important;
       -webkit-filter: invert(100%) !important;
 }
</style>

I am trying all of these and none (with sort of-the exception of final code above.

However, I am trying to start out with my set of images WITH an opacity mask and when rolled over, I want the fully colored image to appear. Anyone know how to do that?

Also note, declaring the type of style:


<style type="text/css"> CSS Here </style>


seems important

@pareto-design the fade effect worked great! but the image I'm using for the rollover effect is a png (a circle) and yet the fade is acting on a square. Is there a way to make it fade the circle only? Any help would be great!

Hello there! I seem to have found the person who can help me. Fingers crossed at least and thank you for all the information above.

I would like to add the darkout/button hover effect on my gallery images in Marta (what I'm using) like the one found on the Wexley template. On hover, the image would also display their title. Please let let me know how I can go about the addition of this visual effect.

My website: www.frenchiessentials.comThank you.
