Front image looks darkish

Dear Support,

I selected a front image, which is this one However, it looks darker ( than the original. Why is that? How to make it look as the original?
Thank you

Hello, that’s because there is an overlay.

You can add this CSS code in Customize → Additional CSS section to make it transparent:

.header-image::after {
    background-color: transparent;

Please feel free to ask any other questions that you might have.

Kind Regards, Roman.
