I am trying to resize promoted links tiles to 250px x 250px however am struggling to find a correct method of doing so. These have pictures and title/information text. I've seen some Javascript methods however there appears to be a limitation on how big these tiles can be.

The solution below worked however I am now trying to sort the hover over animation.

The below image shows the tiles I've just created on the bottom row - we'd like them to display the mouseover the same as on the top row and only show the tile description and not the title itself. But only show this on mouse-over. So the tile would be completely clear before hand.

enter image description here


add the following CSS inside a Script Editor web part

<style type="text/css">

  /*  tile row height */
  div.ms-promlink-body {
    height: 100px;

  /*  tile dimensions, including inter-tile margin */
  div.ms-tileview-tile-root {
    width: 110px !important;
    height: 110px !important;

  /*  tile and title( + description) overlay dimensions */
  div.ms-tileview-tile-content, div.ms-tileview-tile-detailsBox {
    width: 250px !important;
    height: 250px !important;

  /*  tile background image dimensions */
  div.ms-tileview-tile-content > a > img {
    width: 100% !important;
    height: 100% !important;

  /*  title and description text  */
  ul.ms-tileview-tile-detailsListMedium {
    height: 100px;
    padding: 4px 7px 7px;
    font-size: 11px;
    line-height: 14px;

  /*  description text class  */
  li.ms-tileview-tile-descriptionMedium {
    padding-top: 10px;
    font-size: 11px;

  /*  title text when description not shown  */
  div.ms-tileview-tile-titleTextMediumCollapsed {
    background-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.6);
    width: 86px;
    height: 29px;
    position: absolute;
    top: -33px;
    left: 0px;
    padding: 4px 7px 0px;
    font-size: 11px;
    line-height: 13px;
