Making Image Backgrounds Transparent

Recommended Posts

Hi All-

My images contain transparent backgrounds and I'd like for the background to actually remain transparent on the site.  

I took a quick screen shot below.  The gray area of the image shouldn't be there.  It is actually a transparent background.  Any way to persist the transparency of the actual image to the image card?  Happy to throw some css in there, but not exactly sure what to do.

Thanks,

Greg

I'm having the same issue with a PNG w/ transparency and the CSS code doesn't work for me unfortunately. 

I'd like to add a background image that's a wide brush-stroke on transparent layer. 

 

the landing page as is:

The brushstroke image I'd like to place as a backdrop (but I'd still like the above bg color to remain)

And I get this undesired effect of the png image taking on a new background color.

Hi @tuanphan

Wondering if you could help - i have the same issue and wanting to have an image with transparent bg as a section background with the original section background colour coming through. Currently, the bg image is sitting beneath the bg colour. Is there any way for the bg image to sit above the section bg colour?

The URL is https://yuki-template.squarespace.com/test

Thanks
