Instant.js 1.1 allows you to add an instant picture effect (including tilt) to images on your webpages. It uses unobtrusive javascript to keep your code clean.

It works in all the major browsers - Mozilla Firefox 1.5+, Opera 9+, Safari and IE6+. On older browsers, it'll degrade and your visitors won't notice a thing.

Setting Up

Download instant.js and include it into your webpage.

<script type="text/javascript" src="instant.js"></script>

Using It

To make it glossy just add a class="instant" to the image (minimum dimension: 80x80).



Shows some of the things "instant.js" does.

First image with class = "instant itiltleft icolor000000 ishadow50" all other images with class = "instant" only...



Why use Javascript Instant Image?

In older browsers, the script degrades and your visitors won't notice a thing.
