overflow:transparent / overflow with opacity

  • # February 23, 2013 at 11:36 am

    I’ve been looking for a way to give overflow some transparency in a responsive layout. So far this is the only method I’ve found, and I haven’t been able to get it to work:

    My specific situation is I have an image that’s going to be positioned via margin-left so it hangs slightly outside of a sidebar, and I’d like the part that hangs outside to have an opacity of .5.

    Can anyone think of a better way to do this? Thanks!

    It’s a little hacky (at least to me)…

    What @Paulie_D did. With or without pseudo-element though. You could apply the background-image to the div.
