Show faded image and clear on mouse hover

To show blurred, faded or washed-out image by using CSS and clear effect on mouse over on the image we need to use simply two CSS opacity and filter: alpha

See following image, by default all will be faded on page load and once user will mouse over on any image that will look like the third image means that will be cleared. alt text

We can use these CSS anywhere in our application, for a single image, images in grid view, images in data list or any other control used by our application, here is the CSS

.faded
{
   opacity:0.5;
   filter:alpha(opacity=50);   /* For IE */
}

.faded:hover
{
  opacity:1.0;
  filter:alpha(opacity=100);   /* For IE */
}

Now let's see the HTML, how to use these two classes:

<img src="/images/lion1.png" alt="lion1" class="faded" />
<img src="/images/lion2.png" alt="lion2" class="faded" />

OR

<asp:Image ID="img1" runat="server"
    ImageUrl="/images/lion1.pmg" CssClass="faded" />
<asp:Image ID="img2" runat="server"
    ImageUrl="/images/lion2.pmg" CssClass="faded" />

As we can see here we just added class faded and that's only need to give the faded effect on an image. This css can be used for any element like div, span or any element which you want and effect will be same.
