CSS Background Properties
background: #000 url(some-image.jpg) no-repeat;
What if your background image fails to load? Or perhaps your site visitor has disabled background images in their browser. For these and other reasons, the W3C recommends defining compatible background colors along with images in your site's CSS.

Hi I tried what you said but
the background image is still not showing. Perhaps I did it at the wrong spot
? I figured it was where the iforms were and the other details.

So your Gallery is all in Flash. You might try changing the WMODE parameter in your Flash Gallery code to transparent but I don't think this will work in all browsers.
wmode- Possible values: window, opaque, transparent. Sets the Window Mode property of the Flash movie for transparency, layering, and positioning in the browser.
window- movie plays in its own rectangular window on a web page.
opaque- the movie hides everything on the page behind it.
transparent- the background of the HTML page shows through all transparent portions of the movie, this may slow animation performance.
I checked and flash had it set to opaque...so I tried windows and still nothing. I didn't really want to try the last option as that will reduce performance and the images are already high rez as it is. And this was done thru Bridge. You'd think there would be an easy way just to get a background in instead of the colours. Unfortunatly Flash is covering the entire area that my client wants the background showing....this was a last minute thing...just like the image gallary...we were all set for flash video show with his own tv set and all. Now he's mad cause I can't get a background to work.
Is the page where both pages are combined....including the image gallary...

This is the page The Bridge creates and then used Iframes to put it in the above page and want the background to show thru, not the dark colours.
The last one was close, but now I'm afraid with flash completely overtop of the background it could be hopeless. I'm on a time constrain. You all know how it is with clients with every changing ideas 3 days before launch which was last week. Any ideas at all at this point would be helpful. He just wants a photogallary that he can see his background thru! I"m willing to change programs at this point if I have too for something that easily puts the background in for you! I'd trade my time im for that at this point!
Thanks Everyone and Thanks Nancy!
