scaleZ() CSS Function


The scaleZ90 CSS function scales the element along the Z axis. The effect will be noticeable only when using perspective, rotating the element along the X or Y axes, as well as when the element is shifted along the Z axis.


scaleZ() = transform: scaleZ(<number>);


  • <number>The value is a positive or negative number.
    - a value greater than 1 (for example: 1.5) increases the scale;
    - a value less than 1 (for example: 0.8) reduces the scale;
    - a value of 1 leaves the element size unchanged and does not give a visible effect.


<img class="scaleZ" src="images/nature.jpg" alt="Nature Image">
.scaleZ {
transform-origin: top;
transform: perspective(400px) scaleZ(1.5) rotateX(45deg);
margin-left: 60px;
