A simple, minimal, responsive, animated lightbox script created for image gallery. Written in HTML, CSS/CSS3 and a little bit of jQuery.

How to use it:

1. Create the HTML template for the image lightbox.

<div id="gallery-lightbox-container">
  <div id="gallery-lightbox">
    <div id="lightbox-image-container">
      <img id="lightbox-image" src="#">
      <div>
        <p id="lightbox-text">**image description will be placed here by jQuery function**</p>
        <p id="exit-lightbox">&#x2716;</p>
      </div>
    </div>
  </div>
</div>

2. Load the latest jQuery library in the document.

<script src="/path/to/jquery.min.js"></script>

3. Hide the lightbox container on page.

$('#gallery-lightbox-container').hide();

4. The main function to insert content to the lightbox.

function openLightbox() {
  $('#lightbox-text').html('<p>Description of Item</p>');
  $('#lightbox-image').attr('src', 'image.jpg');
  $('#gallery-lightbox-container').slideDown(200);
}
