Portfolio Hover Image Opacity

Hello all,

I have a portfolio page as my cover page currently with the layout Hover: Fixed. I have icons that are supposed to be transparent as the hover images, but Squarespace is adding a black overlay on top of them. A Squarespace agent let me know that this is an known issue but that I would currently need to use custom coding to get rid of the overlay. I was wondering if anyone here could help me out? 

The website is password protected, the pw is 123. I've attached a screenshot of what I mean - I do not want the gray background there. If there's also a way to reduce the actual transparency of the image itself through custom coding so that the project titles can be seen and not just blend in, that would be great as well.

Worked like a charm, thank you! Is there any way to lower the opacity of these photos too? 

.portfolio-hover-bg-overlay {
    background: rgba(0,0,0,0.1) !important;
}

0.1 is opacity

(0 to 1)
