Hey, everyone! Spencer Forman here, and I’m excited to share with you how I added some CSS magic to my sales page and achieved a stunning 3D floating effect for an image.
As you may know, CSS is a powerful tool that can transform any element on a web page. And in this case, we’ll be using the CSS property of transform along with a few others like rotate, box-shadow, width, and vertical margin to achieve the desired effect.
But before we dive into the technical details, let me first explain what I was trying to accomplish. I had an image on my LaunchFlows sales page that I wanted to stand out and catch the eye of my visitors. And what better way to do that than by making it look like it’s floating above the page?
To achieve this effect, I started by selecting the image element on my page and adding a class to it. This allows me to target that specific element with CSS and apply the necessary styles.
Next, I added the following CSS code to the class:
transform: rotate(-5deg) translateY(-20px);
box-shadow: 0px 20px 30px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2);
margin: 0 auto;}
Let me break down what each of these styles does:
transform: rotate(-5deg) translateY(-20px);– This rotates the image by 5 degrees to the left and moves it up by 20 pixels. This gives the impression that the image is tilted and floating above the page.
box-shadow: 0px 20px 30px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2);– This adds a subtle drop shadow to the image, which further enhances the 3D effect.
width: 80%;– This sets the width of the image to 80% of its container, which ensures that it’s not too large or too small.
margin: 0 auto;– This centers the image horizontally within its container.
position: relative;– This sets the position of the image to “relative”, which means that we can use the “z-index” property to control its layering on the page.
z-index: 1;– This sets the z-index of the image to 1, which means that it will appear above other elements on the page that have a lower z-index.
With these styles in place, I was able to achieve the desired 3D floating effect for my image. And the best part is that it only took a few lines of CSS!
Now, you may be wondering what “z-index” is and why it’s important. Well, z-index is a CSS property that controls the layering of elements on a web page. Elements with a higher z-index will appear above elements with a lower z-index.
In our case, we set the z-index of the image to 1, which means that it will appear above other elements on the page that have a lower z-index. This is important because we want the image to stand out and be the focus of attention.
So, there you have it! That’s how I added CSS magic to my sales page and achieved a stunning 3D floating effect for an image. I hope you found this tutorial helpful and that you’ll be able to use these techniques to enhance your own web pages.

Keep experimenting and pushing the boundaries of what’s possible with CSS. Even though the WYSIWG page builders like Gutenberg have eliminated a huge part of the design burden, CSS gives you a “superpower” with which you never know what kind of magic you’ll be able to create!
Thanks for watching and happy coding!
