CSS | skew() Function

  • Last Updated : 08 Aug, 2019

The skew() function is an inbuilt function which is used to transform an element in the 2D plane. Skew an element means to pick a point and push or pull it in different directions.

Syntax:

skew( ax )

or

skew( ax, ay )

Parameters:

  • ax: This parameter holds the angle representing the horizontal axis to distort an element.
  • ay: This parameter holds the angle representing the vertical axis to distort an element. If it is not defined then it takes the default value zero. It means completely skew in x direction.

Below examples illustrate the skew() function in CSS:

        }
        .skew_image {
            transform-origin: top left;
            transform: skew(30deg, 0);
        }
