No hack needed, you can pick whatever color you want in Photo Gallery. Go to Albums, under the Advanced tab you can change the background color for the image captions.
Like most of the excellent flexibility in Photo Gallery, the only trick is in knowing where you are in the tool so you can find the change you want quickly.
Hope this helps.
I would resize your turkey picture outside of the program and readd it into your site as it's pretty distorted looking. Stretching pictures inside VSD isn't the best way to try to size your images for quality and of course things like this with distortion of sizing.
A Couple more comments,
The links in blue are barely readable against the black background.
I would move the light blue panel down a fair bit because it obscures the drop shadow of the title or alternatively remove the drop shadow as Janys has already suggested.
Remove the black border round the online database text or make it a great deal thinner.
Just my thoughts
When I stop learning please check for signs of life.
I like the VSD and the fact that it is something simple enough for ME to use. I also appreciate the feedback, though I would still like tips on how to clean up/polish the site. Easy ways to create objects with a convexed apperance, I have done gradients, and multiple layers. I just am not able to create what I have seen on other sites.
Thanks for the help, you guys rock!
I do prefer the shadows, though I am always open to suggestions or alternatives.
As for the text, I have not figured out how to keep them turning blue and underling whenever I link the text, so I am just going to replace those boxes with pictures. Though if there was a simpler way(which I am sure there is) I would appreciate it.
I don't think the text shadows of the logo is the issue as it looks really really good as far as looking at just that part of the site, but...
I think what was hinted at is that with this type of business, the last thing people want to see on a site like this is flashy and awesome looking, I don't think what people are looking for will be how beautiful the website looks if they are actually seeking out a cemetary. Mostly they will want to make sure that they can find all the information they need there. Yes it should look nice, and it surely does, but not too flashy if you know what I mean. I'm pretty sure that was the hint about the logo text being a bit much for this type of business. In general it would look very nice on most normal sites
