Making background of Gallery transparent - is it possible?

Recommended Posts

Site URL: http://atreegnome.squarespace.com

Hello - I am helping a friend redesign a website. We have a custom background image that we are using, but noticed that when you add an Image Gallery block, it blocks the background image from being seen completely. For example, we have the background color set to dark blue, and are using a semi-transparent background image. When creating an Image Gallery block, all you see in the block around the photos is the dark blue color, and not the actual image. 

Is there some code that we can add that will make this area transparent, allowing us to see the background image? I do not have a live website link to provide, so I hope my explanation is good enough.

Thanks!
