Adding an Animated Scroll Effect to your Images

Animated images are more engaging to site visitors than static images. In this tutorial, Solodev will show you how to add an animated scroll effect to your website's images using animate.css and the viewport checker jQuery plugin. This will animate your images to display their full resolution as you scroll, providing an interactive user experience (UX).

This tutorial provides a simple implementation of a web page with this animated effect you can make your own. Below is the HTML, CSS, and JavaScript required.

Step 1 - index.html
