jQuery.BlackAndWhite – Convert coloured images to B&W


This plug-in can easily convert any colored image into a B&W greyscale image. It uses the the HTML5 canvas tag and a fallback for the old browsers. There are three options to choose from – normal, hover effect inverted and ajax content.

You can easily implement it in your projects and achive classy look of your images.

$('.bwWrapper').BlackAndWhite({
hoverEffect : true, // default true
// set the path to BnWWorker.js for a superfast implementation
webworkerPath : false,
// for the images with a fluid width and height
responsive:true,
// to invert the hover effect
invertHoverEffect: false,
speed: { //this property could also be just speed: value for both fadeIn and fadeOut
fadeIn: 200, // 200ms for fadeIn animations
fadeOut: 800 // 800ms for fadeOut animations
},
onImageReady:function(img) {
// this callback gets executed anytime an image is converted
}
});
});
