Wix Image Change On Hover: Wix Image Hover Effect Tutorial (Easy)

On the right page you want to add your Wix image hover effect within your Wix editor, go ahead and click on "Add Elements" from the left-hand side panel. Select "Button" and then "Image Buttons". Go ahead and click on any one of these image buttons. Don't worry too much about which one you choose, since we'll be editing its image later.

Once you've added the image button, go ahead and click on "Change Icon". You'll notice that there are three tabs up top: "Regular", "Hover", and "Clicked". This is exactly how we'll be adding the Wix image hover effect to our image. Let's go ahead and click on "Regular" first, and then on "Change Image". Feel free to add one of your site files or even explore media from Wix, Shutterstock, or Unsplash.

I'll go ahead and click on "Upload Media" up top, then I'll click on "Upload from Computer". I

I'll locate the first image I want to add to my Wix image hover effect and then click on "Open". Once the image has been uploaded, go ahead and click on "Apply".

Now, let's click on "Hover" and change that image to another one by again clicking on "Upload Media", "Upload from Computer", locating the hover image we want to add, and then clicking on "Open". Once that second image has been uploaded, go ahead and click on "Apply". Repeat the same process for when the image has been clicked.

Once you've added the correct images to the "Clicked", "Hover", and "Regular" settings, feel free to make additional changes to your Wix image hover effect. This includes whether you want to apply transition effects (either "None" or "Dissolve"). Select where the button links to by clicking on "Add a Link" and then selecting either "None", a page, a web address, a section, anchor, top or bottom of the page, a document, an email, a phone number, or even a lightbox.

I'll go ahead and select "Web Address" and paste in my website in the space provided. Make sure that it opens in the current window and then click on "Done". You can also add a tooltip to this image, which is basically a description of what this image is. I'll switch this to "Sad Face".

Now, let's make the same changes to the hover effect. As you can see, it already has the transition effect and the link that will be added in the previous step. But let's change the tooltip to "Happy Face" and do the same thing under the click setting.

Perfect! Once you've changed the image you want to add a hover effect to, you can click on "Animation" from its individual toolbar to choose an animation to add your Wix image hover effect. You can even click on "Customize" to edit its direction, power, duration, delay, and whether you wish to only animate it the first time or not.

Once you're done customizing your Wix image on hover, click on "Preview" to see this effect in action. As you can see here, there was an animation when that sad face came in. If we put our cursor on top of the sad face, it turns into a happy face.

Once you're happy with your Wix image hover effect, click on "Publish" on the top right-hand side to make your changes active.
