Beautiful Animated Hover Effect Captions For Images On Blogger

   Css3 Blogger Tutorial
In this post we have not only an amazing effect you can add to the images you use in your blog posts but it's amazingly simple and amazingly fast so wont slow down you page load time.The effect is similar to what you will see on many Featured Posts Gadgets, when you hover your cursor over the image a caption scrolls up from the bottom with your selected text.

So, you can have the title of the image, a description, date taken, credit or anything you like.The code we will use has No Javascript this ensures it will load fast and as i said not slow down your blog.The code is all Css3 (Don't Worry I Will Keep It Simple) so you have a flowing and transparent effect with the caption.There is also a stylish Shadow edge around the image On-Hover.

Just show us the demo and screenshot so we can see for ourselves i here you shout !

OK But, Before i show you the demo you should note while this image caption will work with all browsers older versions of Internet Explorer will not have the fluid style or transparency.Internet Explorer 9 does a better job and it works perfect in Firefox and Chrome.

How To Get Your Image URL

I try to leave no one behind so if your a complete newbie you may ask 'How Do I Get The Image URL ?'.

OK, basically upload your image to blogger as usual, in the HTML view of your post editor your image code will look something like this :

<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">
<a href="" imageanchor="1" style=""><img border="0" height="213" width="320" src="" /></a></div>

The actual image URL is the part in red, if your still having trouble drop a comment.
