Hi Christina and welcome to the Canvas Community!
I am assuming you are an instructor that is uploading an image in your course setting so that it appears on the card on the dashboard. If this is correct, each individual controls how that page looks. You can change the overlay behavior by clicking the dots menu to the right of the Dashboard header and click the "Color Overlay" option. If it is checked, click it and it will remove the color overlay on cards that have an image.
Hope this helps and if this isn't what you are looking for, just ask away and we will do our best to help.
Thank you Randy.
I tried this but did not have the option to remove the color overlay. I could just change the color and clear was not an option. I would like just to have the colors of the image without being overlaid with another hue. Suggestions please.
Do you know if your school is using Canvas hosted by Instructure or Self-Hosted? I have double checked our configuration settings (for the Instructure hosted version), and there is no configuration option on whether this is allowed or not. So I am wondering if your school might be running and older self-hosted version?
Also can you please advise what options you do have in the dropdown for the three dotted menu?
Look forward to hearing from you.
