Hover Scroll Animation effect using CSS

Posted in: CSS 1 Comment

In this tutorial I will show you how you can apply a cool scrolling effect to images using CSS. When you hover an image it will change its image with a cool scrolling effect. No javascript / jquery is used, just CSS.

I will use a twitter icon to explain with an example.

Step 1: Prepare image
We need two images that will change on hover. Prepare an image such that upper half contain first image and lower half contain second image. I will use below image here.

Step 2: Prepare HTML code
Our next step is to write HTML code. Lets’ write simple HTML code to display this icon:

<a id ="twitter" href="https://twitter.com/techyag"></a>

Step 3: CSS
Now add following CSS style.

#twitter { }

background:url("img/icon.png") no-repeat;
background-position:0 0;
background:url("img/icon.png") 100% 0 no-repeat;
background-position:0 100%
