Image rotate on hover

CSS, Animation, Visual

Creates a rotate effect for the image on hover.

  • Use scale and rotate when hovering over the parent element (a <figure>) to animate the image, using the transition property.
  • Use overflow: hidden on the parent container to hide the excess from the image transformation.
<figure class="hover-rotate">
  <img src=""/>
.hover-rotate {
  overflow: hidden;
  margin: 8px;
  min-width: 240px;
  max-width: 320px;
  width: 100%;

.hover-rotate img {
  transition: all 0.3s;
  box-sizing: border-box;
  max-width: 100%;

.hover-rotate:hover img {
  transform: scale(1.3) rotate(5deg);
