Show Image over an Image using CSS


This Tip/Trick shows how to show an image over another image. Using the properties position, left, top, z-index, you can achieve that.


<title>Show Image over image</title>
<style type="text/css"> 
img { position:absolute; top: 25px; z-index: 2;}
.imgA1 { left: 0px; } 
.imgB1 { left: 0px; } 
.imgB2 { left: 15px; } 
.imgB3 { left: 30px; } 
.imgB4 { left: 45px; } 
.imgB5 { left: 60px; } 
.imgB6 { left: 75px; } 
.imgB7 { left: 90px; } 
.imgB8 { left: 105px; } 
.imgB9 { left: 120px; } 
<img src="" style="z-index: 1;" class="imgA1"/>
<img src="line.gif" class="imgB1" />
<img src="line.gif" class="imgB2" />
<img src="line.gif" class="imgB3" />
<img src="line.gif" class="imgB4" />
<img src="line.gif" class="imgB5" />
<img src="line.gif" class="imgB6" />
<img src="line.gif" class="imgB7" />
<img src="line.gif" class="imgB8" />
