CSS | shape-image-threshold Property

  • Last Updated : 28 Nov, 2019

The shape-image-threshold property is used to set the threshold of the alpha channel used to extract the shape when using an image for shape-outside.

Syntax:

shape-image-threshold: <alpha-value>

Property Values:

  • alpha-value: It is used to set the threshold for extracting the shape. The pixels which are greater than the threshold value would be considered for the shape. A decimal value from 0.0 to 1.0 can be used for setting the threshold from fully transparent to fully opaque. If the values are outside the range they are clamped to this range.

Below examples illustrate the shape-image-threshold Property:

Example 1: In this example, we will set the threshold to 0.5






<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  
<head>
    <title>
        CSS | shape-image-threshold
    </title>
    <style>
        .outline {
            shape-outside: linear-gradient(
                    to right, green, transparent);
          
            /* shape-image-threshold effect */
            shape-image-threshold: 0.4;
            background-image: linear-gradient(
                    to right, green, transparent);
            width: 300px;
            height: 130px;
            float: left;
        }
    </style>
</head>
  
<body>
    <center>
        <h1 style="color: green">
            GeeksforGeeks
        </h1>
          
        <b>
            CSS | shape-image-threshold: 0.5;
        </b>
          
        <br><br>
    </center>
