I would like to darken the images in the gallery on hover even more than what they are now. I'm in the Brine template. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks! 🙂

Code: Andersweb

You mean

Hover image (on Work page) > Show black overlay + White title?

Yes, exactly! Right now the images in the gallery have a minimal black overlay, which is just from the Squarespace settings. I would like the overlay to be darker. 

Thanks!

Try adding this to Design > Custom CSS

article.Index-gallery-item:hover figure:after {
    background-color: rgba(0,0,0,0.5);
    display: block;
    content: "";
    position: absolute;
    top: 0;
    left: 0;
    width: 100%;
    height: 100%;
    z-index: 9999;
}

Hi tuanphan,

This worked so well, but after I've been finishing the design on the site the black overlay stopped working. 

Do you have any idea why it's not working anymore? I really appreciate your help! 

I'm looking to do this: Hover image (on Work page) > Show black overlay + White title.

Thank you! 🙂 The black overlay is back, but now the white text is behind the overlay and there's a black box behind the text. You can see it on the attached screenshot. Do you have an idea of why it's happening?

Add this CSS

h2.Index-gallery-item-content-heading {
    position: relative;
    z-index: 30000000;
}

@tuanphan thank you! The text is correct now, but there's still a black box behind the text. Any idea why? 

Thank you so much for your help!

    top: 0;
    left: 0;
    width: 100%;
    height: 100%;
    z-index: 9999;
}

to this

article.Index-gallery-item:hover a.Index-gallery-item-image:after {
    background-color: rgba(0,0,0,.5);
