Expanding Image Gallery With CSS Grid Layout


A minimal photo gallery that expands the image to the full size on hover without breaking the layout. Built with CSS Grid Layout system.

How to use it:

1. Add images to the gallery.

<div class="gallery">
  <img src="1.jpg" alt="Alt 1" />
  <img src="2.jpg" alt="Alt 2" />
  <img src="3.jpg" alt="Alt 3" />

2. The required CSS styles for the gallery.

.gallery {
  --s: 150px; /* control the size */
  --g: 10px;  /* control the gap */
  --f: 1.5;   /* control the scale factor */
  display: grid;
  gap: var(--g);
  width: calc(3*var(--s) + 2*var(--g));
  aspect-ratio: 1;
  grid-template-columns: repeat(3,auto);
.gallery > img {
  width: 0;
  height: 0;
  min-height: 100%;
  min-width: 100%;
  object-fit: cover;
  cursor: pointer;
  filter: grayscale(80%);
  transition: .35s linear;
.gallery img:hover{
  filter: grayscale(0);
  width:  calc(var(--s)*var(--f));
  height: calc(var(--s)*var(--f));
