Image Filters

CSS Filters

The CSS filter property adds visual effects (like blur and saturation) to an element.

Note: The filter property is not supported in Internet Explorer, Edge 12, or Safari 5.1 and earlier.

Grayscale Example

Change the color of all images to black and white (100% gray):

img {
    -webkit-filter: grayscale(100%); /* Safari 6.0 - 9.0 */
    filter: grayscale(100%);
}
Pineapple
Original image
Pineapple

img {
    -webkit-filter: blur(5px); /* Safari 6.0 - 9.0 */
    filter: blur(5px);
}
