CSS: create white glow around image

How can I create a white glow as the border of an unknown size image?

Answer

Use simple CSS3 (not supported in IE<9)

img
{
    box-shadow: 0px 0px 5px #fff;
}

This will put a white glow around every image in your document, use more specific selectors to choose which images you'd like the glow around. You can change the color of course :)

If you're worried about the users that don't have the latest versions of their browsers, use this:

img
{
-moz-box-shadow: 0 0 5px #fff;
-webkit-box-shadow: 0 0 5px #fff;
box-shadow: 0px 0px 5px #fff;
}

For IE you can use a glow filter (not sure which browsers support it)

img
{
    filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Glow(Color=white,Strength=5);
}

Play with the settings to see what suits you :)
