Hi, I've been wreaking my head with light-box for a good while now and nothing seems to help. I need it to, when i click the photo link to just pop up, image centered and have the overlay fill the screen, simple right? However the overlay turns into a vertical pillar of transparent grey, only filling the middle of the screen, and the image clings to the top of it for dear life. I used to play around with this stuff but it's been a while and I have no idea what it is that I'm doing wrong, below is the html,css and java-script code, any help would be greatly appreciated

HTML:


  • <img src="images/mens/clarks/swiftmile.jpg">

    Swift Mile Also Available In Black


  • CSS:

    /* Styles the lightbox, removes it from sight and adds the fade-in transition */

    .lightbox-target {
    position: fixed;
    top: -100%;
    width: 50%;
    height:100%;
    background: rgba(0,0,0,.7);
    width: 50%;
    opacity: 0;
    -webkit-transition: opacity .5s ease-in-out;
    -moz-transition: opacity .5s ease-in-out;
    -o-transition: opacity .5s ease-in-out;
    transition: opacity .5s ease-in-out;
    z-index:9999;
    overflow: auto;
    }

    /* Styles the lightbox image, centers it vertically and horizontally, adds the zoom-in transition and makes it responsive using a combination of margin and absolute positioning */

    .lightbox-target img {
    margin: auto;
    position: absolute;
    top: 0;
    left:0;
    right:0;
    bottom: 0;
    max-height: 0%;
    max-width: 0%;
    border: 3px solid white;
    box-shadow: 0px 0px 8px rgba(0,0,0,.3);
    box-sizing: border-box;
    -webkit-transition: .5s ease-in-out;
    -moz-transition: .5s ease-in-out;
    -o-transition: .5s ease-in-out;
    transition: .5s ease-in-out;
    }

    /* Styles the close link, adds the slide down transition */

    a.lightbox-close {
    display: block;
    width:50px;
    height:50px;
    box-sizing: border-box;
    background: white;
    color: black;
    text-decoration: none;
    position: absolute;
    top: -90px;
    right: 0;
    -webkit-transition: .5s ease-in-out;
    -moz-transition: .5s ease-in-out;
    -o-transition: .5s ease-in-out;
    transition: .5s ease-in-out;
    }

    /* Provides part of the "X" to eliminate an image from the close link */

    a.lightbox-close:before {
    content: "";
    display: block;
    height: 30px;
    width: 1px;
    background: black;
    position: absolute;
    left: 26px;
    top:10px;
    -webkit-transform:rotate(45deg);
    -moz-transform:rotate(45deg);
    -o-transform:rotate(45deg);
    transform:rotate(45deg);
    }

    /* Provides part of the "X" to eliminate an image from the close link */

    a.lightbox-close:after {
    content: "";
    display: block;
    height: 30px;
    width: 1px;
    background: black;
    border:black;
    position: absolute;
    left: 26px;
    top:10px;
    -webkit-transform:rotate(-45deg);
    -moz-transform:rotate(-45deg);
    -o-transform:rotate(-45deg);
    transform:rotate(-45deg);
    }

    /* Uses the :target pseudo-class to perform the animations upon clicking the .lightbox-target anchor */

    .lightbox-target:target {
    opacity: 1;
    top: 0;
    bottom: 0;
    }

    .lightbox-target:target img {
    max-height: 100%;
    max-width: 100%;
    }

    .lightbox-target:target a.lightbox-close {
    top: 50px;
    }
