Weebly Tricks #56 - 8 Awesome Image Hover Effects with CSS3

Posted by Domingo Tambasacan at 6/23/2014

Pure CSS3 image mouseover for Weebly

Inspired with CSS3 effects, I would like to share the works of Allesio Atzeni from codrops. It uses pure CSS3 which is easier to apply on your Weebly site. While he says that these effects are experimental, there is no problem showing it on modern browsers that supports CSS3. There are actually 10 effects to discuss but I didn't include the second and the ninth for some unidentified problem.

Before we proceed, I would like to introduce my new way of writing tutorials. To make it simpler, I will just divide my post into significant chunks with supporting links on them to avoid repeating words again and again.

  1. Hi, I love your website. I have tried out 2 of your tutorials and they came out great! Not sure which one I'll use. Your tutorials are very easy to follow! I have run into a little problem with fonts though. I cannot change the font size in the code b/c it seems to be overriden by weebly's font code. For instance, in the tutorial about - the title (yellow highlight) is controlled by weebly's paragraph title font controls and not what number I use in the code. Hope that makes sense. Is there a code I can use to override this for this effect. I have spent two days trying and I'm going crazy!

    Thank you in advance for your help and keep up the good work!

    1. Hi Ynette,

      Glad to see you here. Those font size, style and color is some of the trickiest part to edit. But you know what, you might find some hidden tips when you post this on the forum.

      See you there.
