Thanks for this screen shot SM... but I have never seen any of these options. I don't know where they exist.

I was able to get rid of the annoying grey overlay squarespace puts over your images with a white background or a transparent background.

Go to edit your entire page and not just text / content on the page. You'll do this by going to Edit > Design > Colors. Once in colors, scroll down to your active theme. In this case mine is White Bold Default. Click on the little pencil icon in the button next to your active theme. Scroll down to image block and depending on if you're using a card or an overlap or poster, change the "image overlay" from black to white.

 

This fixes this issue

Has anyone been able to fix this issue using the most recent Squarespace designer website? Since site styles has been added? I no longer see the "image overlay" option under "colours" or under "image blocks"....So frustrating!!! I tried to choose a palette that had white as one of the three colours and it appeared to work but when I saved and jumped out the grey came back! It's like squarespace really doesn't want white backgrounds.....

If Site Styles doesn't help you, try adding this to Design  >Custom CSS

.image-overlay {background: transparent !important;}
