Hi, I am trying to make an image gallery using css3, html and javascript. It works fine until now, but it has a major problem. It should rotate like a wheel, but the pics that should be in the back get over those that should be in the front. I am a little noob, actually this is my first attempt at web design outside of school, so any help would be greatly appreciated! ;D
Here's the code, there are some unneeded parts which I used to experiment some properties, sorry if it looks untidy :Smile

<!DOCTYPE html>
      <style type="text/css">
body {
      background-image: url("holding_hands_.jpg");
      background-size: 100%;
      background-repeat: no-repeat;
      margin: 0;
h1 {
      color: rgb(0, 0, 0);
      font-size: 150%;
.preview img {
      border: 6px solid #444;
      padding: 1px;
      max-width: 600px;
                max-height: 450px;
      margin-top: 150px;
  #stage {
    margin: 2em auto 1em 50%;
    height: 140px;
    perspective: 1200px;
    -webkit-perspective: 1200px;
    -webkit-perspective-origin: 0 50%;
  #rotator {
    transform-style: preserve-3d;
    -webkit-transform-origin: 0% 0%;
    transform-origin: 0% 0% 0px;
    transition: 1s;
  #rotator a {
    position: absolute;
    left: -81px;
  #rotator a img {
    position: absolute;
    display: block;
    top: 10px;
    left: 10px;
    border: 1px solid #ccc;
    background: #fff;
    -webkit-backface-visibility: hidden;
    transform-origin-z: 50% 50% -500px;
  #rotator a img:hover {
   border: 4px solid #00ccff;
   opacity: 0.5;
  #rotator a:nth-of-type(1) img {
    -webkit-transform: rotateY(-90deg) translateZ(300px);
    transform: rotateY(-90deg) translateZ(300px);
  #rotator a:nth-of-type(2) img {
    -webkit-transform: rotateY(-60deg) translateZ(300px);
    transform: rotateY(-60deg) translateZ(300px);

var angle = 0;
function galleryspin(sign) {
   spinner = document.querySelector("#rotator");
   if (!sign) {
      angle = angle + 30;
   } else {
      angle = angle - 30;
   spinner.setAttribute("style","-webkit-transform: rotateY("+ angle +"deg);transform: rotateY("+ angle +"deg);");

Hi karakter98, I haven't

Hi karakter98,
I haven't tried playing with your code but it sounds like you need to look into z-index

Tried it

Hey I have tried you code, and I think Tony is right, you need a z-index. It will definitely be better.
