On my Canvas dashboard, my course "logo" looks faded. How do I restore its clarity?

Hola Canvas,

First of all, thank you for your support.  You guys are great.

I begin a new semester this coming week.

I have a great Canvas curriculum planned.

But, when I look at my dashboard, my course "logo" looks faded.

This is happened before; however,   I can't remember how to restore the clarity and the color.

Below, I provide a SNIP of how one logo appears on my dashboard.

Underneath, I provide a copy of the original. 

Do you have any suggestions? 

Please let me know.

Hey, Jay -

It's a cover overlay that is set up on the main page. You can click the three vertical dots to change that overlay! Hope that helps!

Wow! Thank you for your response.

I found the three dots, but I'm not confident in what to do next.

Here is what I found:

Do I need to look up an appropriate code to enter into the box? What color do I choose to produce more clarity.

Please let me know. Thank you for all you do!


JL're going to have to choose a color. #f0f0f0 can make a pretty solid color, but it still will appear less clear. Or try #FEFDFD. You can also look up different HTML codes to use here:

In all, my suggestion would be #embracethecolor!

 @jlewenstein ‌, you can also remove the color overlay from all of the cards on your dashboard by following the instructions in the View Color Overlay section of  This setting will only affect your view of the course cards; other people enrolled in the course would still choose a color for the card or disable the overlay at their discretion.
