  • Hue-Rotate
  • Invert
  • Saturate
  • Opacity

How To Use Filters

filter: type(value);

Browser Support

As said above this CSS property is an experimental property only for webkit browsers, therefore you will not be able to use this tool on a browser that is not webkit.

To view an updated table of the browsers that support this property you should visit caniuse.com.

Using The CSS Filters Generator

To use this filter generator you start off by selecting an image to use as the HTML element to apply the filters. There is a default image to start with or you can paste in the URL of your own image.

Click on the filters tab and you will see a dropdown of the filters you can apply. Select the filter that you want to use, this will then display a input box with a slider where you can select a value to give the filter.

Each filter can have a different type of value, some filters accept percentage values, some pixel values and other filters accept degree values.

As you select your filter and change the value you will see the filter applied to the preview image at the top of the page.

To get the code for the filter click on the HTML & CSS tab and copy the CSS into your own website.
