How to zoom an element on hover using CSS?
Implementing a zoom on image or other elements is easy, with just one single line. You use transform and scale the image.
But scaling the image inside a container requires a few more lines.
There are a few ways we can do this. I will demonstrate a couple of ways.
Adding overflow: hidden is MUST in both of these approaches. It will prevent the image from going outside of its container when it scales.
Using a fixed height and width
You can set a fixed height and width for a container and then adjust the image inside.
Additionally, you can have CSS properties like box-sizing
First thing you need to do is to set the display property of the container to inline-block. You can have it set as inline-grid, inline-flex too if you’d like. Also, set the image to block or flex.
