HTML Create a Modal Window with CSS

Can you create a modal window for an image with this method?

I would like to create an image modal when a thumbnail is clicked. Is it possible to do it with the CSS method explained on this video: https://teamtreehouse.com/library/create-a-modal-window-with-css-2

<div class="modal">
        <input id="modal__trigger" type="checkbox">
        <label for="modal__trigger">Launch Modal</label>
        <div class="modal__overlay">
          <div class="modal__wrap">
            <label for="modal__trigger">&#10006;</label>
            <h2>This is your modal content</h2>
            <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Sed ac laoreet elit. Phasellus dignissim purus vitae urna cursus, quis congue ligula tristique. Ut nec blandit risus. Donec at orci ut justo venenatis viverra. Suspendisse in volutpat lacus. In enim est, dapibus eget ipsum sed, suscipit ultrices diam.</p>

ok i see, yes its possible, i played around with the sample code we make in this workshop and here's what i could build .


examine it , hope it helps.

p.s : for light boxes ( modal windows that show anything but mostly images or videos ) you can use these two amazing plugins too.
