Cover Image is Darker than before I uploaded it

I have noticed that this happens with some of the images I implement. This big cover image at the top of the page is far brighter before I upload it to wordpress, but when I upload it and insert it the image becomes darker than previous. Is there any fix to this? Below here is my step process to how I uploaded the picture.

Page > Row > Edit Row > Under Row Styles I select Themes > Background Image > Upload > Insert

Here is the Website link.

Thank you for your help,

Dear Sean,

By default the dark overlay always be attached on the background image. Indeed it isn’t considered as an issue. But the initial design purpose doesn’t seem to meet with your need. To get rid of it, could you please try to apply the following CSS code through the Simple Custom CSS plugin or child theme’s style.css?

.panel-row-style[data-hasbg="hasbg"] .overlay{
  display: none;


Thank you! That worked!

No worries. Just go easy on it.
