Ok this is driving me a bit mental and it's possible I've been looking at it too long to see the answer anymore, and it seems so simple.

When a product is listed if the product image isn't the same dimensions as the display box it places a white surround to it. Ok sounds simple enough to sort just change the CSS.

Hmmm i have been all through the CSS and added my own but the images still get a white background.

When i use the same images in image_gallery they are displayed fine no surround unless i specify it so my question is where the hell is the eccomerce module getting the idea of putting a white surround on the images i can't see it in any of the CSS.

if your unsure what i mean heres the site

hope you can help put me out of my misery.

Hello cumquat,

you have also checking the ProductGroup.css, i think you must change these parameters for another color!

.product_summary li.productItem

border: 1px solid #c9e5f7;//default

Cheers for the response,

i have been through all the style sheets, i'm not sure it's held there. I have set a background colour and you can see that when it loads but then the image just sits on top of it. I'm wondering whether it's a code thing to make the image up to a certain size and if it's not say 100px by 80px make it that size with a white background.

Does that make sense?

Like i said this has been driving me made for three days now.

i think this is a problem of the paddedResize as the (white) background is part of the image itself.

I have not tested it and it is entirely possible that I'm wrong but I think you have two options.

You can specify another background color in product.php on line 313 like

return $gd->paddedResize(140,100,000000);

You can change that line to do a resizeByWidth instead of a paddedResize

You were right on the money.

I was sure it was gonna be something along those lines but not being much of a php guy couldn't find the code.

Many thanks for that.
