    Background modification for website

    I'm looking for an idea (or even better - realization ) to make the following background more compatible with transparent banners (image of boots with text in this example):

    As you may see, dumbbell is dark grey, surrounded with too bright colors. This makes text hardly readable, so in my opinion, there should be less contrast difference. I'm not sure what are the viable options here, perhaps you might have any nice ideas?


    Here is the source background:
    And that's how website will roughly look like (with different background amongost other things of course): Journal | Premium & Responsive OpenCart Theme

    I think the problem actually lies with your choice of picture for the background.
    You'll notice in the demo of the theme, the background is fairly plain - with no small details to distract the eye.
    Your picture has the dumbell in the foreground, one blurred out in the background, arms and hands and all kinds of distractions.
    The only way I can see for you to use the image you have chosen is to reduce the opacity so it fades out - and that will not necessarily work in all browsers.

    If only I could find a good alternative to this background...

    It has to be compatible with IE8+, Chrome and FF so perhaps it would be wiser to change the opacity in Photohop, but how? If I choose white background for example, it will just look brighter. Or did you mean to change opacity locally on that problematic dumbbell area?
