A simple, lightweight jQuery plugin for creating an image gallery where your users are able to click the thumbnail to view the large version in a responsive, navigatable lightbox popup.

How to use it:

1. Insert your images into a DIV container with the CSS class of 'gallery'.

<div class="gallery">
  <a href="large-1.jpeg">
    <img src="thumb-1.jpg" alt="Image #1">
  <a href="large-2.jpeg">
    <img src="thumb-2.jpg" alt="Image #2">
  <a href="large-3.jpeg">
    <img src="thumb-3.jpg" alt="Image #3">

2. Include jQuery library and the main JavaScript file lightbox.js at the bottom of the webpage.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="lightbox.js"></script>

3. Initialize the gallery lightbox plugin on link click.

$('.gallery').on('click', 'a', function (e) {

4. Apply your own CSS styles to the gallery lightbox.

/* Sample style for lightbox */
.lightbox {
  position: fixed;
  z-index: 999;
  left: 0;
  right: 0;
  top: 0;
  bottom: 0;
  display: none;
  background-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.9);
  background-repeat: no-repeat;
  background-position: center;
  background-size: 20px;

.lightbox-image {
  position: absolute;
  left: 50%;
  top: 50%;
  transform: translate(-50%, -55%);
  max-width: 95%;
  max-height: 85%;
  border: 5px solid #fff;
  box-shadow: 0 0 50px #000;

.lightbox-controls {
  position: absolute;
  left: 50%;
  bottom: 2px;
  transform: translateX(-50%);
  padding: 0 10px;
  border-radius: 50px;
  background: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.1);
  white-space: nowrap;
  transition: 0.2s;

.lightbox-controls button {
  margin: 0 4px;
  padding: 0 4px;
  border: 0;
  background: none;
  color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.8);
  font-size: 40px;
  cursor: pointer;

.lightbox-controls button:hover { text-shadow: 0 0 10px #fff; }

.lightbox-controls button:focus {
  outline: none;
  color: #fff;

@media (min-width: 1024px) {

.lightbox-controls { bottom: -50px; }
