Steps for Creating Radio Button as Images :

Step 1 : Create HTML Form

Firstly, Let’s create an HTML form of radio buttons.

<body style="background-color: rgb(19,0,27);">
<div align="center" style=" color:white;">
    <h1 style="font-family:Berlin Sans FB;color:rgb(158, 0, 226)">
      <strong> Images as a Radio Buttons </strong>
    <form method="post" action="javascript:void(0)">
      <input type="radio" id="radiobtn1" name="item" class="Send_data  input-hidden" value="Apliance Repair" />
      <label for="radiobtn1">
        <img src="" style="width:130px;border-radius:20px;" />
        <span>Apliance Repair</span>
      <input type="radio" id="radiobtn2" name="item" class="Send_data  input-hidden" value="Electrician" />
      <label for="radiobtn2">
        <img src="" style="width:130px;border-radius:20px;" />
      <input type="radio" id="radiobtn3" name="item" class="Send_data  input-hidden" value="Mason" />
      <label for="radiobtn3">
        <img src="" style="width:130px;border-radius:20px;" />
      <input type="radio" id="radiobtn4" name="item" class="Send_data  input-hidden" value="Plumber" />
      <label for="radiobtn4">
        <img src="" style="width:130px;border-radius:20px;" />
    <div id="loading" style="color:rgb(157, 255, 0)">

Step 2 : Adding CSS to HTML form

Next, Let’s add some CSS to make the form more beautiful and attractive for the user.

.input-hidden {
  /* For Hiding Radio Button Circles */
  position: absolute;
  left: -9999px;
input[type="radio"]:checked + label > img {
  border: 1px solid rgb(157, 255, 0);
  box-shadow: 0 0 3px 3px #9e00e2;
input[type="radio"] + label > img {
  border: 1px rgb(0, 0, 0);
  padding: 10px;
  transition: 500ms all;
input[type="radio"]:checked + label > img {
  transform: rotateZ(-10deg) rotateX(10deg);

Step 3 : Adding jQuery Script

Finally, Let’s add some jQuery which will help us to identify which option we have selected.

$(document).ready(function () {
  $(".Send_data").click(function (e) {
    if ($("input[type=radio][name=item]:checked").length == 0) {
      // alert("Please select atleast one");
      return false;
    } else {
      var item = $("input[type=radio][name=item]:checked").val();
      //  window.alert("You Selected")
      window.setTimeout(function () {
        // do whatever you want to do
        $("#loading").html("You Selected : " + item);
      }, 600);
        '<br><span class="spinner-border fast"  style="width: 2rem; height: 2rem;color:green;"  role="status"></span>'
