    I want to create an image hover effect and want to when hover on images the opacity decrease to 50% and background to #000 color.

    But when I hover on img the black background comes 1px down.

    here is the result:

    how can I fix this problem???

    Thanks in advance!



    You need to put line-height:0px; in works class like :
    .works {
    overflow: hidden;
    position: relative;

    Than check it out…..


    Thanks you very much!

    the first “line-height:0px;” code worked very well.
    the second code “display:block;” worked as well but with some issues on hovering.

    Thanks again!


    Images are inline by default. Space is therefore reserved ‘under’ the image for the descenders of a font – it rests on the baseline. There are a number of ways to get the effect you want, two of which have been mentioned: with a line-height of 0 the baseline is at the bottom of the inline-box; changing the default display value to block removes the inline characteristics the image would normally have. The third way is to set the image to the bottom of the inline-box with vertical-align: bottom;
