Demo Image: Thumbnail Gallery with Hover Effect

Thumbnail Gallery with Hover Effect

Display: flexbox is on the gallery list to avoid overflow and clearing issues. Images are wrapped within link-tags with position: relative. When having the thumbnail absolute positioned, one can than for example transition the values for max-width from 100% to 120%, and adept the values for left and top on those thumbnail images (on hovering those wrapper links). All this giving the effect of scaling the images on hover with smooth transitions in minimal code.
