The transform-origin property lets you change the position of transformed elements.


The x- and y-axis of an element can be changed for 2D transformations, while 3D transformations can also change the z-axis of an element.

div.tran {
  transform: rotate(45deg);
  transform-origin: 25% 45%;


Designates where the view is placed at the x-axis. Possible values: left, center, right, length, and %.

Designates where the view is placed at the y-axis. Possible values: top, center, bottom, length, and %.

For 3D transformations, designates where the view is placed at the z-axis. Possible values: length.

Sets the property to its default value.

Inherits this property’s value from its parent item.
