"In this post I’ll show how to create a custom segue that animates an image to a new full screen view controller when tapped. This effect is similar to what you see when the Facebook iOS app makes a photo fullscreen."
"Segues make it easy to abstract view controller transitions into reusable objects. Instead of having all the animation logic in your view controller the segue is now responsible for that. The view controller its role is reduced to configuring the segue and view controllers involved in the transition."
