How To Make Images Grayscale With Only CSS

There's no longer a need to fire up Photoshop and save a different version of your image. A new CSS3 filter can turn images grayscale (greyscale if you're British, or black and white if you prefer).

About This Script

To use this, simply copy the CSS from below to the <head> tag of your page. Then add the "grayscale" class to any image you want to make grayscale.


* Also compatible with non-pizza images.


<style type="text/css"> /** * Greyscale image effect provided by */ img.grayscale { filter: url("data:image/svg+xml;utf8,<svg xmlns=''><filter id='grayscale'><feColorMatrix type='matrix' values='0.3333 0.3333 0.3333 0 0 0.3333 0.3333 0.3333 0 0 0.3333 0.3333 0.3333 0 0 0 0 0 1 0'/></filter></svg>#grayscale"); /* Firefox 10+, Firefox on Android */ filter: gray; /* IE6-9 */ -webkit-filter: grayscale(100%); /* Chrome 19+, Safari 6+, Safari 6+ iOS */* } </style> <!-- Examples. You don't need to copy this part. --> <img class="grayscale" src="" /> <img src="" /> <img class="grayscale" src="" /> <img src="" />
