Add White Overlay to All Images

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I'm trying to add a white 50% opaque overlay to all images on the website I am editing. I've tried several tutorials on editing list or gallery item blocks, but nothing I does seems to have an effect on the carousel elements. What I'm aiming for is the images to look faded, and when they are hovered over, become brighter (their original color, with no overlay). I want this to apply to all images in the two carousel blocks on the home page, as well as plain image blocks on other pages. What CSS can I use to accomplish this? Is part of the reason I'm struggling with tutorials due to fluid engine?

This should be possible, you might be running into a few differences with Fluid Engine that might be why tutorials aren't working.

Can you add a site wide password to your website so it can be viewed?

I'm also trying to set the corner radius of all images to 50%. Can't figure that out either. Here's the password: camilla

img {
    border-radius: 50% !important;
.fluid-image-container:after {
    content: "";
    background-color: rgba(0,0,0,0.9);
    position: absolute;
    top: 0;
    left: 0;
    width: 100%;
    height: 100%;
    z-index: 9999;
    border-radius: 50%;
