There are two ways of adding this to your site: either to every image on your site, or only to those wrapped in a specific div class. We're going with the second. As for where to put the CSS, if you have a custom theme you can add it in there, otherwise you can just put it in a CSS module on each page you have the image. This is the same for just about every entry we'll post, so take note, because we won't be writing it with every single time.
