Using Css to set "opacity" or transparency

  • # October 26, 2009 at 4:06 pm

    Hi there,

    Just a question …

    In photoshop you can set the opacity of a layer to give it a kind of "see through" effect. If there is a container div with a background colour (container_a) inside another container with a back ground image (container) … is there a way to use CSS to make the first container (container_a) transparent or to give it a "see through" effect?

    I would really like to know.

    you can use rbga, filter, and other calls.

    do a google search for css transparency.
