Button
Description

The structure of markup is very simple and intuitive. Create a container that will have our image and all the other infomation.

<div class="view view_first">
	<img src="YourImage.jpg" alt="" />
	<div class="mask">
		<h2> Heading </h2>
		<p> Text </p>
		<a href="#" class="btn">Button</a>
	</div>
</div>

Add the special class view_first to the element with the class view for the first effect.

In the second hover we will add the special class view-second, but we will leave the element with the class mask empty and wrap the description in a div with the class content

<div class="view view_second">
	<img src="YourImage.jpg" alt="" />
	<div class="mask"></div>
	<div class="content">
		<h2> Heading </h2>
		<p> Text </p>
		<a href="#" class="btn">Button</a>
	</div>
</div>

For other hover effects you can use the same HTML structure. You only need to change class view_second to the following ones:
view_third - third effect
view_fourth - fourth effect
view_fifth - fifth effect
view_sixth - sixth effect
view_seventh - seventh effect
view_eight - eight effect

In ninth hover, we will use two mask elements to slide them in from the bottom right and the top left:

<div class="view view_ninth">
	<img src="YourImage.jpg" alt="" />
	<div class="mask mask-1"></div>
	<div class="mask mask-2"></div>
	<div class="content">
		<h2> Heading </h2>
		<p> Text </p>
		<a href="#" class="btn">Button</a>
	</div>
</div>

Define .view and .mask width and height which match image`s width and height in style.css file.

CSS3 has a really great potential for creating nice effects. Soon, we’ll hopefully be able to avoid the use of JavaScript for simple effects and rely 100% on CSS, in all browsers.

CSS3 Images Style

Description

When applying CSS3 inset box-shadow or border-radius directly to the image element, the browser doesn't render the CSS style perfectly. However, if the image is applied as background-image, you can add any style to it and have it rendered properly.

To add such images to the page you need to copy the code and in the style.css file define background image and image dimensions.

HTML

Circle Image

<span class="image_round"></span>

Card Style

<span class="image_card"></span>

Embossed Style

<span class="image_embossed"></span>

Soft Embossed Style

<span class="image_soft-embossed"></span>

Cutout Style

<span class="image_cut_out"></span>

Morphing & Glowing

<span class="image_morphing_glowing"></span>

Glossy Overlay

<span class="image_glossy"></span>

Reflection

<span class="image_reflection"></span>

CSS

.YourStyle{
background:url(YourImage.jpg) 0 0 no-repeat;
width:YourImageWidth px;
height:YourImageHeight px;
}
