Hover over image glow, extends too far

  • # March 7, 2013 at 11:12 am

    So i am a css newbie here, and i need some help

    so i made an image glow using this code:

    #divgreydout1 {
    -webkit-opacity: 0.25;
    moz-opacity: 0.25;
    opacity: 0.25;
    -webkit-transition: all 3s ease;
    -moz-transition: all 3s ease;
    -ms-transition: all 3s ease;
    -o-transition: all 3s ease;
    transition: all 3s ease;

    #divgreydout1:hover {
    -webkit-opacity: 1;
    -moz-opacity: 1;
    opacity: 1;

    My problem is not that it doesnt glow, but even if i hover my mouse a bit far away from the button itself the image starts to glow i only want the image to glow when the mouse is in contact with the button.

    Here is an image of the button:

    There are no ‘glow’ properties listed other than opacity which will affect the whole div.

    I’m not seeing a ‘button’ either.

    At the moment if you hover over #divgreydout1 it will come to opacity:1

    If you want it only to do so when the mouse button is pressed…try

    My guess is `#divgreydout1` is not the button/image itself but a div around it (divs extend to full available width, unless styled otherwise). Change your selector, something like `#divgreydout1 > img` (just guessing here)
