The image zoom effect is used to apply zoom over an image on mouse hover or click. This type of effect is mostly used in portfolio sites. It is useful in situations where we want to show the user details on the image.

There are two possible ways to create a mouse hover effect.

  • Using JavaScript
  • Using CSS

In this article, we will see how to zoom an image on hover using CSS. This article contains two sections of code. The first section contains the HTML code and the second section contains CSS code.

HTML Code: In this section, we will use HTML to create a basic structure of Image Zoom on hover effect.




<!DOCTYPE html>

<head>
    <meta charset="UTF-8" />
    <meta name="viewport" content=
        "width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0" />

</head>
  
<body>
    <div class="geeks">
        <img src=
            alt="Geeks Image" />
    </div>
</body>
  
</html>

CSS Code: In this section, we will use some CSS property to Zoom an Image on mouse hover. To create a zoom effect, we will use transition and transform property.






<style>
    .geeks {
        width: 300px;
        height: 300px;
        overflow: hidden;
        margin: 0 auto;
    }
       
    .geeks img {
        width: 100%;
        transition: 0.5s all ease-in-out;
    }
       
    .geeks:hover img {
        transform: scale(1.5);
    }
</style>

Complete Code: In this section, we will combine the above two sections to create an Image Zoom effect on mouse hover using HTML and CSS.
