Hi you all, I'm in need to find how to create the effect to darken the background when a picture is clicked to provide more focus to it. The ideal would be for the image be zoomed in and the rest of the website became darkened but not to disappear completely, just became blurred and darkened if possible if not to became at least darkened.
I would like very much to get an idea how to go at it.

Examples are welcomed.

Thank you all.
