Create an Image Comparison Slider

Step 1) Add HTML:


<div class="img-comp-container">
  <div class="img-comp-img">
    <img src="img_snow.jpg" width="300" height="200">
  <div class="img-comp-img img-comp-overlay">
    <img src="img_forest.jpg" width="300" height="200">

Step 2) Add CSS:

The container must have a "relative" positioning.


* {box-sizing: border-box;}

.img-comp-container {
  position: relative;
  height: 200px; /*should be the same height as the images*/

.img-comp-img {
  position: absolute;
  width: auto;
  height: auto;
  overflow: hidden;

.img-comp-img img {
  display: block;
  vertical-align: middle;

.img-comp-slider {
  position: absolute;
  z-index: 9;
  cursor: ew-resize;
  /*set the appearance of the slider:*/
  width: 40px;
  height: 40px;
  background-color: #2196F3;
  opacity: 0.7;
  border-radius: 50%;

Step 3) Add JavaScript:


function initComparisons() {
  var x, i;
  /* Find all elements with an "overlay" class: */
  x = document.getElementsByClassName("img-comp-overlay");
  for (i = 0; i < x.length; i++) {
    /* Once for each "overlay" element:
    pass the "overlay" element as a parameter when executing the compareImages function: */
  function compareImages(img) {
    var slider, img, clicked = 0, w, h;
    /* Get the width and height of the img element */
    w = img.offsetWidth;
    h = img.offsetHeight;
    /* Set the width of the img element to 50%: */ = (w / 2) + "px";
    /* Create slider: */
    slider = document.createElement("DIV");
    slider.setAttribute("class", "img-comp-slider");
    /* Insert slider */
    img.parentElement.insertBefore(slider, img);
    /* Position the slider in the middle: */ = (h / 2) - (slider.offsetHeight / 2) + "px"; = (w / 2) - (slider.offsetWidth / 2) + "px";
    /* Execute a function when the mouse button is pressed: */
    slider.addEventListener("mousedown", slideReady);
    /* And another function when the mouse button is released: */
    window.addEventListener("mouseup", slideFinish);
    /* Or touched (for touch screens: */
    slider.addEventListener("touchstart", slideReady);
     /* And released (for touch screens: */
    window.addEventListener("touchstop", slideFinish);
    function slideReady(e) {
      /* Prevent any other actions that may occur when moving over the image: */
      /* The slider is now clicked and ready to move: */
      clicked = 1;
      /* Execute a function when the slider is moved: */
      window.addEventListener("mousemove", slideMove);
      window.addEventListener("touchmove", slideMove);
    function slideFinish() {
      /* The slider is no longer clicked: */
      clicked = 0;
    function slideMove(e) {
      var pos;
      /* If the slider is no longer clicked, exit this function: */
      if (clicked == 0) return false;
      /* Get the cursor's x position: */
      pos = getCursorPos(e)
      /* Prevent the slider from being positioned outside the image: */
      if (pos < 0) pos = 0;
      if (pos > w) pos = w;
      /* Execute a function that will resize the overlay image according to the cursor: */
    function getCursorPos(e) {
      var a, x = 0;
      e = e || window.event;
      /* Get the x positions of the image: */
      a = img.getBoundingClientRect();
      /* Calculate the cursor's x coordinate, relative to the image: */
      x = e.pageX - a.left;
      /* Consider any page scrolling: */
      x = x - window.pageXOffset;
      return x;
    function slide(x) {
      /* Resize the image: */ = x + "px";
      /* Position the slider: */ = img.offsetWidth - (slider.offsetWidth / 2) + "px";
