CSS | invert() Function
The invert() function is an inbuilt function that is used to apply a filter to the image to set the invert of the color of the sample image.
invert( amount )
Parameters: This function accepts single parameter amount which holds the amount of conversion. The value of invert is set in terms of value and percentage. The value 0% represents original image and 100% represents the inverted image.
The invert() function internally uses the following formula, to computer the inverse of the image:
amount * (255 - value) + (1 - amount) * value
The value of inversion is controlled by the variable
amount, the variable value lies between 0 – 1(floating) range (this is done by converting the passed percentage of color inversion to a value between 0-1). The value is the the color value of the pixel.
(255-value) gives the color after subtracting the color value with the max pixel value, assumes that the value of the pixel is in the range 0 – 255 (though input image sample space could be stretched/scaled to meet the specified criteria).
Below is a table containing a list of inversion percentages and the result they produce.
|50%||Image with each pixel having grey color|
|100%||Completely inverted Image|
