Is there a CSS course that works specifically with images and all the effects you can do with them?

I would like to learn how to make an image full size when it is clicked and then go back to its original size once an x button is clicked.

Hi Joseph,

To get an image to do/behave as you're describing you need to use javascript. Check out the courses here on Treehouse. I'm sure one of them deals with images.

CSS is used to style things to look a certain way. Javascript is used to make it behave a certain way (respond to an event, such as a mouseclick on a button somewhere on the page, or a hover over a chart).

Hope it helps! Max
