Rotating Images Animation

About this Code

       Hello reader, I am frontendforever. Nice to meet you again in this free code sharing website. In this post I am going to explain about Rotating Images Animation. If you are new to this website, we recommend you to subscribe to our youtube channel and watch the videos. Ok lets dive into the code.

HTML and CSS image rotation techniques
A CSS rotate class, which is appended to any tag to rotate the image, can be used to rotate an image on a web page.

CSS rotation of an image

For the image to be rotated in all popular Internet browsers, the CSS code must include a transformation code for each.
Here is some CSS code that will rotate a picture 180 degrees.
The following transformations are applied to the image:

.rotatingimage180 {
  -webkit-transform: rotate(180deg);
  -moz-transform: rotate(180deg);
  -ms-transform: rotate(180deg);
  -o-transform: rotate(180deg);
  transform: rotate(180deg);

Change the "180" in the CSS code and the element to the desired degree to rotate an image by a different number of degrees.


The amount of rotation created by rotate() is specified by an . If positive, the movement will be clockwise; if negative, it will be counter-clockwise. A rotation by 180° is called point reflection.

div {
  transform: rotate(a);
Is an representing the angle of the rotation. The direction of rotation depends on the writing direction. In a left-to-right context, a positive angle denotes a clockwise rotation, a negative angle a counter-clockwise one. In a right-to-left context, a positive angle denotes a counter-clockwise rotation, a negative angle a clockwise one.
