The purpose of this article is to learn how to add filters to an image using CSS. The CSS filter property is used to set the visual effect of an element. This property is mostly used in image content.

Syntax:

filter: none | blur() | brightness() | contrast() | drop-shadow() | grayscale() | hue-rotate() | invert() | opacity() | saturate() | sepia() | url();

Example:

HTML




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  
<head>
    <style>
        body {
            background-image: url(
            filter: brightness(90%);
            filter: grayscale(70%);
        }
    </style>
</head>
  
<body>
    <center>
