ASP.NET image overlay

I have an aspx page that populates images from a datasource url.

The same datasource has a field that =1 if sold and =0 if avaiable.

Is it possible to place an "overlay" on the image if the item is sold?

The original's are all jpg's and the overlay is an image of the same sive but is a alpha transparency gif.

could you not use 2 separate images and choose which one to use on each row based on the value of the sold/available field?
Maybe a case statement in your sql select?

Or perhaps a div containing the transparent gif that is positioned over the original image with the div set to hidden or default based on the sold/availble field?

You can place the image within the cell of a table and then change the background of the cell to the iamge that you want to show .. add a image tag within the td and set the src to the gif file - sold or available ..

a better option would be to use the style property of the image tag .. like this
<img style="background:url(YourImage.jpg)" src="Sold.gif" alt="" />
