Photo Thumbnail with Zoom Effect on Click

Written by @kerixa 3 March 2021

Putting large photos in your website might need a big space. Hence, you can put a thumbnail and show the real image size with click. In the code below, the photo is displayed in a small size, and by clicking on it, this photo is displayed in a larger size, which is very useful for sites that have a photo gallery.

Code Snippet:

                                                
                                                <!-- this script is provided by www.htmlfreecode.com coded by: Kerixa Inc. -->
<style>
html, body {
    font-family: sans-serif;
    padding: 0 1em;
    font-size: 19px;
    background: #222;
    color: #aaa;
    text-align: center;
}

p {
    margin: 1.5em 0;
    color: #aaa;
}

img {
    max-height: 50vh;
}

a {
    color: inherit;
}

    a:hover {
        color: #bbb;
    }

.italic {
    font-style: italic;
}

.small {
    font-size: 0.8em;
}

/** LIGHTBOX MARKUP **/

.lightbox {
    /* Default to hidden */
    display: none;
    /* Overlay entire screen */
    position: fixed;
    z-index: 999;
    top: 0;
    left: 0;
    right: 0;
    bottom: 0;
    /* A bit of padding around image */
    padding: 1em;
    /* Translucent background */
    background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.8);
}

    /* Unhide the lightbox when it's the target */
    .lightbox:target {
        display: block;
    }

    .lightbox span {
        /* Full width and height */
        display: block;
        width: 100%;
        height: 100%;
        /* Size and position background image */
        background-position: center;
        background-repeat: no-repeat;
        background-size: contain;
    }
    .a_tag {
      display:block
    }
</style>
