Changing Image Opacity on MouseOver using jQuery

Have you played the online memory game where an image appears when you hover over it and disappears on hover out. You have 20 images to view in 30 seconds and the one remembering the most wins. Well I wont be creating the game over here, but I will show you how to change the opacity of the image when the mouse if hovered over it.

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<
head runat="server">
<
title></title>
<
style type="text/css">
img
{
opacity:0.0;
filter:alpha(opacity=0);
}
</style>
<
script src="Scripts/jquery-1.3.2.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

<
script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function() {
$('img').each(function() {
$(this).hover(function() {
$(this).stop().animate({ opacity: 1.0 }, 500);
},
function() {
$(this).stop().animate({ opacity: 0.0 }, 500);
});
});
});

</script>
</
head>
<
body>
<
form id="form1" runat="server">
<
div>
<
img alt="" src="images/emo.jpg" />
<
img alt="" src="images/icon068.gif" />
<
img alt="" src="images/icon260.jpg" />
</
div>
</
form>

</
body>
</
html>

Initially, all the images have an opacity of 0 – being completely transparent. When the mouse hovers over each one of them, the image is displayed, one at a time. The image disappears when the mouse hovers out. You can even use this technique to create a cool UI effect in your applications.

Thanks! Just what I was looking for, but in reverse (i.e. alpha decreases on mouseover).
