Opacity for shadows, backgrounds, etc…

Author Posts


I need to be able to specify opacity for colors. I don’t want to use any pngs I need real opacity for my text and box shadows via RGBA Colors.
Example: background-color: rgba(255, 0, 0, 0.3)

Also I tried using Transparent ARGB hex values without success. http://hex2rgba.devoth.com/

The opacity control in Microthemer fades everything background, any text on top of it. That is not what I need.


Hi, Robert,

When you’re editing shadows and backgrounds – in the colour fields instead of a hex value just paste in the entire rgb values you want, including the opacity value:

rgba(255, 0, 0, 0.3)

I can’t recall which thread but I do remember a post in this forum mentioned that method. The opacity is as you mentioned – effects all contained elements as well but using the rgb value effects just the element you apply it to.


Thanks Abland! Good advice.



Yes that does work perfectly I am really happy. Microthemer is the best! I have tried a lot of products and I just love Microthemer. It feels more like Adobe InDesign for me which I love, nothing else comes close.
