    The slideshow is great, but how can I remove the transparent text on the slideshow description?

    Many thanks in advance.

    The text is inside a transparent element, which makes the text transparent as well.

    You can solve this by creating a custom stylesheet and using a transparent image as background. You can find out how to create custom stylesheet in the FAQ section.

    When editing the custom stylesheet, find this line:

    .slideshow_container .slideshow_description { background: #000; width: 100%; }

    Then replace it with the following:

    .slideshow_container .slideshow_description {
        filter: alpha(opacity = 100) !important;
        opacity: 1.0 !important;
        background: #000 url('URLToTheTransparentImageOfYourChoice');
        width: 100%;

    Don't forget to put the URL to the transparent image of your choice in the CSS code.

    Best regards,

    Thanks Stefan

    However, I don't have a transparent image as such. I would just like to be able to have the semi-transparent background color and reset the text to being normal opacity.

    I hope this is possible.

    Actually scrub that. I have created the tranparent image and it works.

    Although listing background color in the attributes completely defeats the object.

    You can always set the background color with the image, but without the color: background: url('URLToTheTransparentImageOfYourChoice');
