For websites with many design elements and content, in order to help users to focus on the content, applying an opacity on images and removing when hovered is usually a good idea.

Adipoli is a jQuery plugin that beautifies and simplifies creating and consuming such hover effects.

With a simple function, we can choose the "start effect (normal, transparent or overlay)" and the images will become less catch until they are hovered.
