    Hi there,

    I have a series of images, and I want them to all look like as if I am viewing them through coloured glasses. They are all different colours, and I want them all to look a particular shade of green. Maybe something to do with opacity?

    .menuIcons {




    I think the easiest option would be to make the images have some transparency over a colored background. Something like this (demo):


    li {
    background: #0f0;
    display: inline-block;
    width: 100px;
    height: 100px;
    li img {
    opacity: 0.8;
    filter: alpha(opacity=80);



    That does work brilliantly. However, when I applied it to my images (which are little icons with transparent backgrounds over a white background — view it here) I see a green background around them.

    I guess I realise now that I just want the images themselves to move towards a shade of green. Your code works great for completely square/rectangle images. So maybe something for an image program like The Gimp instead?

    Also for my education, what is the difference between these two lines?

        opacity: 0.8;
    filter: alpha(opacity=80);

    thank you for your solution!
