Bloggers Should Learn To Add CSS3 Filters in Blog | Filters Guide

MD M Nauman Tuesday, 25 April 2017 0 comments
Hello Everyone We Know That how CSS is used for setting the visual Style of the Websites or Blogs. But now we go little advance and learn to use CSS3 Filters. 

CSS3 is the latest standard for CSS. CSS3 has many features along with few disadvantages. One of the best feature is CSS3 is Completely backwards-compatible with earlier versions of CSS. So we can use CSS Selectors and Properties with the updated one. 

The major drawback is that it is supported by the latest versions of browsers but for to use in every browser we should add the prefix of the browser For Mozilla Firefox we should add -moz- . For Google Chrome, Safari, Opera we should use the prefix -webkit- . 


CSS3 Browser Compatibility issue
-webkit- Google Chrome, Safari
-moz-Mozilla Firefox
-ms-Internet Explorer
-o-Opera
Always use the above one if you find that some CSS3 properties are not working. If you found that filter property is not working in Firefox then use -moz- as prefix then use filter same as normally we use,

Examaple:

img{
-moz-filter: blur(10px);  /* This will make the filter property to run in firefox. */
filter: blur(10px);  /* This is the standard method for other compatible browsers */
}
So If you want CSS3 Filter to support all the browsers then add all the short names as prefix given in the table.

Example:
img{
-webkit-filter: brightness(150%);  /* Chrome, Safari */  
-moz-filter:  brightness(150%);  /* Mozilla Firefox */ 
-ms-filter:  brightness(150%);  /* Internet Explorer */ 
-o-filter:  brightness (150%);   /* Opera */
filter: brightness(150%);  /* Standard for All */
}


    What is CSS3 Filters Guide?

    CSS3 Filters Guide is a guide where we have shared the information of all the CSS3 filters. This Filters are used to add visual effects to the Markup Elements like images etc. 

    Earlier to add this visual effects Web Designers use two images which was edited by some big photo editing software like Photoshop or others.

    This are the following filters:

    1. Blur
    2. Brightness
    3. Contrast
    4. Drop-shadow
    5. Grayscale
    6. Hue-rotate
    7. Invert
    8. Opacity
    9. Saturate
    10. Sepia
    11. Url

      To use Filter effect on any image then use it like this:

      1. Blur

      Blur Effect will make the image blurred you can use (px) or percent (%) if the value is larger then you will see the image getting more blurred. The default value will be 0 either in (px) or (%)

      See the Pen CSS3 Blurred Effect Before and after by MD M Nauman (@mmnauman) on CodePen.


      img {    -webkit-filter: blur(10px); /* Chrome, Safari */    filter: blur(10px);}
      If you want the image to blur on Mouse hover then use this type of code
      img:hover {    -webkit-filter: blur(10px); /* Chrome, Safari */    filter: blur(10px);}

      If you want to apply blur effect on particular image or some set of images then use the images parent like.

      Color here means the color of the shadow so add the color as the last parameter in order to change the color of the shadow. This is required field because we want a color of our choice if you forget to add the color parameter then the browser will take its default color often it will be black.
      img {
      -webkit-filter: drop-shadow(0px 0px 10px red); /* Chrome, Safari */
