Full Image Reveal Effect

Today we’d like to share a simple fullscreen image reveal effect with you. The idea is to have an inital thumbnails layout at the bottom of the page and then animate the items when we click them. A covering element comes sliding in and when it moves out, the fullscreen image view is shown behind. We are using TweenMax for the animations.

The initial inspiration for this effect comes from Zhenya Rynzhuk’s Dribbble shot Harley Weir Personal Promo Website Scroll Animation.

Attention: In this experiment we use some modern CSS properties, so please view in a capable browser.

The initial thumbnail layout view looks as follows:


When we click on an item, we move the thumbnails up and reveal the fullscreen image:


We hope you enjoy this little experiment and find it useful!
