Working in collaboration with Javier Román Cortés I have produced this demonstration to celebrate 20 years of Photoshop™.

In this demonstration we have experimented with the webkit and moz keyframes style to animate 26 images to produce an infinite 'Zoom-In' effect. The idea and the images are down to Javier Román Cortés and the styling applied by myself.

So if you have either Safari, Chrome, Firefox, Opera or IE10, just hover your mouse over the image to see an infinite zoom-in effect, all done with just CSS.

This demonstration overcomes many limitations with webkit and moz keyframes and gives a fairly smooth transitions from one frame to the next throughout the whole animation.

The total zoom for the 26 images is 67108864:1
