Please visit this site:

Go to the Portfolio tab.  Notice the area where pictures are displayed does not allow the blue "squiggly" background to show through.

How can I change this so that the thumbnails and main image stay "opaque" but the parent container is transparent?

The Portfolio is being generated by a jQuery script which I got from this site:

http://www.twospy.com/galleriffic/


In my attached screenshot, the areas circled in red are supposed to be "on top" and the area behind them should be transparent and show the background.

I tried applying CSS to the parent container to make it transparent at one point, but it made all of it's children transparent as well.  And I have not been able to determine how to keep the children opaque.

Many thanks!

On the container DIV CSS do "background: transparent;"

So:





Right now you probably have it set to #FFFFFF or White.

Perfect!

That was all I needed to do!

Now...do you mind answering just one other question?  


For the same site, when you go to the Portfolio page again, I want to bring the links for "Play Slideshow" and "Previous Photo" "Next Photo" closer together.  Can this be accomplished?

Also, the "main image" that appears when you click one of the thumbnails on the left hand side...I want to have it more at the top and more to the left...perhaps aligned with the the letter "P" in the link for  "Play Sideshow" and then maybe 50 or 100 px below it.
