# Solution 1 :

You were going in the right direction with `getBoundingClientRect`. By using this and applying some calculations on it on, I was able to come up with this

``````let imageResizing = false;

function zoomUnzoomImage(resizeEvent) {
if (!resizeEvent && this.classList.contains('zoomed')) {
this.classList.remove('zoomed');
this.style.transform = "";
document.querySelector('.image-backdrop').classList.remove('zoomed');
removeZoomOutListeners();
removeResizeListener();

} else {
let imageCordinates
if (resizeEvent) {
imageCordinates = this._originalImageCordinates;
}
else {
imageCordinates = getBoundingClientRect(this);
this._originalImageCordinates = imageCordinates;
}

const deviceRatio = window.innerHeight / window.innerWidth;
const imageRatio = imageCordinates.height / imageCordinates.width;

// Scale image according to the device and image size
const imageScale = deviceRatio > imageRatio ?
window.innerWidth / imageCordinates.width :
window.innerHeight / imageCordinates.height;

const imageX = ((imageCordinates.left + (imageCordinates.width) / 2));
const imageY = ((imageCordinates.top + (imageCordinates.height) / 2));

const bodyX = (window.innerWidth) / 2;
const bodyY = (window.innerHeight) / 2;

const xOffset = (bodyX - imageX) / (imageScale);
const yOffset = (bodyY - imageY) / (imageScale);

this.style.transform = "scale(" + imageScale + ") translate(" + xOffset + "px," + yOffset + "px) ";
registersZoomOutListeners();
registerResizeListener();
}
}

function registersZoomOutListeners() {
// zoom out on scroll
// zoom out on escape
// zoom out on clicking the backdrop
}

function removeZoomOutListeners() {
document.removeEventListener('scroll', scrollZoomOut);
document.removeEventListener('keyup', escapeClickZoomOut);
document.querySelector('.image-backdrop').removeEventListener('click', backDropClickZoomOut);
}

function registerResizeListener() {
}

function removeResizeListener() {
window.removeEventListener('resize', onWindowResize)
}

function scrollZoomOut() {
if (document.querySelector('.zoomable-image.zoomed') && !imageResizing) {
zoomUnzoomImage.call(document.querySelector('.zoomable-image.zoomed'));
}
}

function backDropClickZoomOut() {
if (document.querySelector('.zoomable-image.zoomed')) {
zoomUnzoomImage.call(document.querySelector('.zoomable-image.zoomed'));
}
}

function escapeClickZoomOut(event) {
if (event.key === "Escape" && document.querySelector('.zoomable-image.zoomed')) {
zoomUnzoomImage.call(document.querySelector('.zoomable-image.zoomed'));
}
}

function onWindowResize() {
imageResizing = true;
if (document.querySelector('.zoomable-image.zoomed')) {
debounce(
function () {
zoomUnzoomImage.call(document.querySelector('.zoomable-image.zoomed'), true)
imageResizing = false;
}, 100)()
}
}

function getBoundingClientRect(element) {
var rect = element.getBoundingClientRect();
return {
top: rect.top,
right: rect.right,
bottom: rect.bottom,
left: rect.left,
width: rect.width,
height: rect.height,
x: rect.x,
y: rect.y
};
}
function debounce(func, delay) {
let debounceTimer
return function () {
const context = this
const args = arguments
clearTimeout(debounceTimer)
debounceTimer
= setTimeout(() => func.apply(context, args), delay)
}
}

if (event && event.target && event.target.className.includes('zoomable-image')) {
zoomUnzoomImage.call(event.target)
}
});``````

# Problem :

I want to animate an image when clicked to fill the whole screen, in such a way that seamlessly transitions from its original position to its full size, and back again, like on Medium.

The problem here is that the CSS `position` property, with `top` and `left`, is not animatable. After trying that, I thought of using `transform: scale()` properties, but this will lead to a bunch of calculations that I’d like to avoid if possible.

My complicated solution would be to get the element’s original position using `getBoundingClientRect()`, and from there find the end position the image must be in, and create a custom animation every time the image gets blown to full size using `Element.animate`. I’m not sure that’s the best way to go about this, as figuring out the final size and position of the image will be some extra math I don’t really want to mess with.

Below is my current markup, and some CSS showing it’s possible to keyframe a positional animation using `translateX()` and `translateY()`, but not as I really need to.

``````document.querySelector('picture').onclick = function () {
document.querySelector('picture').classList.toggle('modal')
}``````
``````<style>
figure {
margin: 0 0 0 0;
display: inline-block; /* Stays same width as image contents */
background-color: whitesmoke;
}

img {
max-width: 100%; /* Images should fit within their container by default */
height: auto;
background-color: lightgrey;
margin: auto;
}

picture.modal {
position: fixed;
top: 0;
left: 0;
background-color: black;
height: 100vh;
width: 100vw;
margin: 0 0;
display: flex;
align-content: center;
object-fit: contain;
}
picture.modal img {
animation-name: slidein;
animation-duration: 1s;
}

@keyframes slidein {
0% {
transform: translateX(30px);
}
100% {
transform: translateX(0);
}
}

figcaption {
padding: 8px; /* Matches default page margin for Chrome/Edge */
}
</style>
<figure>
<picture>
</picture>
<figcaption>
<footer>Description</footer>
</figcaption>
</figure>``````

I started stubbing out some code as below, but quickly realized that another solution may be much better.

``````// Get the position of elements for animation
let x = document.querySelector('img').getBoundingClientRect().x
let y = document.querySelector('img').getBoundingClientRect().y

// Set the animation on the image so that it moves smoothly from its position outwards
``````

Help with a vanilla CSS solution, if it is known, would be greatly appreciated.

The only thing to add to this would be managing different image sizes properly (pretty easy) and adding event listeners for window resize, which means that image scaling will become a separate function. Still working on other stuff

### Comment posted by Prakhar

@Denis Thanks for recognizing the effort. I am glad it was helpful. Also, I am working on the two features which you have mentioned. Will update the answer once ready.

### Comment posted by Prakhar

I have updated it to add support for different device and image sizes. I was a simple fix, as you had mentioned. Working on resizing now.

### Comment posted by Prakhar

Updated to add resizing, although the implementation can be improved.

### Comment posted by Denis G. Labrecque

This answer is probably the best because it reacts so well to different screen formats and sizes.
