Hello,

I'm Christine, I have just started coding and I'm trying to create a gallery page for a website.
I want to create a gallery like the one below. I want each image to have a hover effect that overlays with text two (two lines only)

and when I click on each image I want it to pop-up onto a page similar to this so that the image is larger and there is some text information giving a longer explanation.

This is the code I have so far, but I am not sure why it's not working properly.
Can I do this with only html, css and javascript? I don't want to use bootstrap or a plugin.

HTML:
<!-- Portfolio section -->
        <div class="gallery-wraper">
            <h1>Portfolio</h1>
        <!-- Filtering buttons -->
            <div class="button-area">
                <button class="button">
                    <input type="checkbox" value="portraits" />Portraits
                </label>
                <label class="button">
                    <input type="checkbox" value="product" />Product
                </label>
                <label class="button">
                    <input type="checkbox" value="portraits" />Portraits
                </label>
                <label class="button">
                    <input type="checkbox" value="portraits" />Portraits
                </label>
            </div>

Sorry I didn't get to you sooner bluedove, but I've been busy.
The main reason your running into problems is because of the use of position: absolute;. It was horrible before css-grid, but using it in a grid is worst. Grid is suppose to be the savor so we never have to use position: absolute; again - except in rare cases. Just a simple layout for you. It does need work but hopfully this will help you understand :
Code:
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>

<head>
<meta charset="utf-8" />
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge" />
<title>Page Title</title>
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1" />
<style>
#grid {
  display: grid;
  grid-template-columns: 50em 20em;
  grid-template-rows: 15em 15em 30em;
  grid-gap: 1em;
  padding: 2em;
}
#item1 {
  background-color: lime;
  grid-column: 1/3;
  grid-row: span 2;
}
#item2 {
  background-color: yellow;
  grid-column: 3;
}
#item3 {
  background-color: blue;
  grid-column:  3;
}
#item4 {
  background-color: purple;
  grid-column:  1/3;
  grid-row:  3;
}
#item5 {
  background-color: pink;
  grid-column:  3;
  grid-row:  3;
}
</style>
<body>
<div id="grid">
  <div id="item1"></div>
 <div id="item2"></div>
  <div id="item3"></div> 
  <div id="item4"></div>
  <div id="item5"></div>

</div>
</body>
</html>
