Today we want to show you how to create a neat lightbox effect using only CSS. The idea is to have some thumbnails that are clickable, and once clicked, the respective large image is shown. Using CSS transitions and animations, we can make the large image appear in a fancy way.

In order to solve this problem I decided to rebuild it from scratch because it doesn’t seem so complicated, the problem was I’m a speed freak, not a designer so inspired by the famous pure css Twitter fail whale I put my CSS muscles to work out focusing obviously on performance to provide those designers a scalable YSlow logo for their delight as well as potentially having a smaller image payload to be used on the web.
