Bootstrap hover effects

Bootstrap hover effect appears when user positions computer cursor over an element without activating it. Hover effects make a website more interactive.

However, we don't recommend to mix hover effects with functional elements (like dropdown on hover or hidden buttons visible only after hovering) because such approach isn't mobile-friendly.

MDB is a mobile-first framework, so we attach great importance to make each component easy to use for touch screens.

That's why our hover effects are gentle and decorative.

<div class="view zoom">
    <img src="https://mdbootstrap.com/img/Photos/Horizontal/People/6-col/img%20(7).jpg" class="img-fluid " alt="">

        <p class="white-text">Zoom effect</p>
    </div>
</div>

Shadow effect

<img src="[...]" class="hoverable">

Usage

Step 1: Create a wrapper containing class .view.

<div class="view">
    [...]
</div>

Step 2: Add a class of the effect you want to use (for example .overlay or .zoom).

<div class="view overlay">
    [...]
</div>

Step 3: Set a path to the image. If you want to make your image responsive, remember to add a class .img-fluid.

<div class="view overlay">
    <img src="https://mdbootstrap.com/img/Photos/Horizontal/City/6-col/img%20(3).jpg" class="img-fluid " alt="">
</div>

Step 4: Add a class .mask to cover the image with the overlay and choose color and intensity of the overlay.

<div class="view overlay">
    <img src="https://mdbootstrap.com/img/Photos/Horizontal/City/6-col/img%20(3).jpg" class="img-fluid " alt="">
     <div class="mask rgba-red-strong">
       
    </div>
</div>

Step 5: If you want to add some text, you can use a class .flex-center to center it, and .white-text to give your text a stronger contrast and make it more visible.

<div class="view overlay">
    <img src="https://mdbootstrap.com/img/Photos/Horizontal/City/6-col/img%20(3).jpg" class="img-fluid " alt="">
    <div class="mask flex-center rgba-red-strong">
        <p class="white-text">Strong overlay</p>
    </div>
</div>

Zoom effect.

To use a zoom effect, follow the instruction above, but insted of .overlay add a class .zoom.

Shadow effect.

To use a shadow effect, you only need to add a .hoverable class to chosen element.
