I think this is because you set the image to change width to 265% in the image settings, rather than zooming/scaling using the transform/scale option. I think that is why the 400ms isn’t affecting it - a transition affects a transform ?
Try these steps and see if it achieves what you are hoping for…
- Firstly remove the 265% on hover for the image. With hover selected click this to remove the style:
- Then put the link block inside the thumbnail:
So now ‘thumbnail image’ should have no hover state, just static.
(CLICK TO EXPAND IMAGES - there is more detail to see!)
Then style the link block like this (i’ve gone for a 1000ms transition):
Then with link block hover state selected:
Scale to suit your design - i’ve gone with a subtle 1.2x
Hope that helps!
