    Hey everybody.
    I've got a background image on a website. However I need the body content to be in a sort of white semi-transparent layer. So the image can still be seen through it but the text is readable!

    Ooh, I 've a good solution for this
    Make a transparent, 1x1 white pixel, and set it as the background. 0kb file size, so it's as if you were using CSS.

    easy, open photoshop or a graphic editor. create a 1x1px canvas, create a new layer and fill with white, then click it, and set the transparency to say 40% (you might need to fiddle with this)

    Save and upload in your text container as:

    Code:
    #container{background-image:url(../images/textcont.png);}
    Make sure you save it as a png though and not a jpg as jpg doesn't support transparency k

    Hope this helps

    Actually, George was slightly incorrect.

    What you want is a translucent background, not a transparent background.
