    CSS3 is exciting. When it was introduced, it seemed like the untapped potential of Web Design was finally unlocked.

    It proposes speedier web page response times due to the reduction of images needed for things such as text effects and web buttons for our UIs.

    It cuts back our dependency on JavaScript for visual presentation purposes such as animation effects, not only resulting in less code (always a good thing) but also equating to even better web page performance.

    It promises less reliance on expensive graphics software like Photoshop.

    But has anything, in the broader scheme of visual design, really changed? We’re still dealing with the same users, the same content and the same user-centered design philosophy.

However, if the image is applied as background-image, you can add any style to it and have it rendered properly. Darcy Clarke and I put a quick tutorial together on how to use jQuery to make perfect rounded corner images dynamically. Today I’m going to revisit the topic and show you how much more you can do with the background-image CSS trick. I will show you how to use box-shadow, border-radius and transition to create various image styles.
