After this we apply a transition on the div as well as image. So, that when our mouse cursor placed on the image it’s zoomed.

The code is given below and after this we also specify which element plays what role in webpage.

<!DOCTYPE html>
          <title> Title of the document<title>
            height: 200px;
            width: 200px;
            margin: 200px;
            transition: transform .5s;
            transform: scale(3);
    <div class="zoom">
        <img src="img.jpg" alt="" width="200" height="200">
  1. First, we write <! DOCTYPE html> which we used as an instruction to the web browser about what version of HTML file is written in.
  2. Secondly, the <html> tag is used to indicate the beginning of an HTML document.
  3. As above now <head> tag is used to contain information about web page. In this tag a <title> tag is used which helps us to specify a webpage title. Both <head> and <title> tags are Paired tags. So, both have </head> and </title> ending tags respectively. Before closing our head tag, we create style tag and the elements of style tags are described in below point.
  4. Thirdly, <body> tag is used to define the webpage body. All the contents to show on website are written here.
  5. In the body tag, we create a div and placed image in this after this we give image width and height for its dimensions and source of image is also given here.
  6. Now there is a class given to division and in head tag there is a CSS specified in which we specify first width and height and margin to show image in center of page after this we use transition attribute and give it a name which is used in hover again.
  7. After this a time is given to transition, you can understand its use by changing this. And in next a hover is used in which we use zoom property.
  8. At last, the <body> and <html> tags are closed with </body> and </html> respectively.
