More background image fun

by Matthias Willerich on September 22 2008, 14:21

Tying in with Pascal’s recent post about background images for images, here is more image-related css magic, this time combined with a little jQuery, to create beautifully animated rollover effects (or whatever trigger you can think of, progress bars etc). Yay, eyecandy!

If you like it or not is of course personal preference, but I think Jonathan Snook’s examples of utilizing jQuery to animate background images are very slick, especially because it’s only using fairly obvious techniques.

His work is based on the ideas of Dave Shea in an article in the late August issue of A List Apart, but he cleans up and improves the readability of the css by miles.
