From our monthly sponsor: Automate manual QA and catch visual bugs with Percy’s all-in-one visual testing and review platform.

Today we’d like to share a little draggable experiment with you. The idea is to show a strip of differently sized images that can be dragged. When clicking and holding to drag, a title element appears and the images get scaled. This separates the images and gives the whole thing an interesting look. When a number gets clicked, the same separation happens and then the images fly up. Another larger version of the images slides in from the bottom.

The animations are powered by TweenMax and we use Dave DeSandro’s Draggabilly.

Attention: Note that the demo is experimental and that we use modern CSS properties that might not be supported in older browsers.

The initial view looks as follows:

DraggableImageStrip_01

When we click to drag the image strip, we show the title:

DraggableImageStrip_02

When clicking on a number, we slide the images up and show a larger view with some content:

DraggableImageStrip_03

Here’s a preview of the whole thing in motion:

We hope you enjoy this experiment and find it useful!
