    I'm new at this thing and I struggle intensely with the basics.  I'm trying to change the color of an image, but I don't know how to get it to work.  I'll click on the box to highlight the image, then click design, pick the color, but nothing happens.  I search the help videos but I don't seem to find the answers.  I don't know the click-chain to get this to change.  Any help for a rookie?

      Thank you for reaching out,


      It's not possible to change the color of an image through the editor but you can edit it and add certain effects.


      The Edit Image feature allows you to edit your image and add a number of different effects, right from the Wix Editor.


      To edit an image: Click the image to select it > from the pop-up menu, click Edit Image > choose an editing option > customize the image > click Apply.


      For more information about this feature, click here

      Let us know if you need additional assistance.

    I, too, am having trouble getting the HEX code to stay when I choose it.  It reverts to another color code, but not the exact color I chose.  Here is a screen shot - I'm trying to change the green shade.  When I click OK, it goes back to the original green on the left.  Thanks for your help!  Cheryl

      Hi  Cheryl,


      Thank you for contacting us.


      I regret to hear you are experiencing difficulties. I have tried to add different HEX color codes to the Color Palette and it works fine on my end. In order for me to better assist you, please provide me with the HEX code for the color or shade you mention and the exact steps you are taking for me to recreate the issue.


      Waiting for your reply

    Hi I have changed the colour of my background from yellow to white. www.kirstybrysonfoodstylist.com

    I have saved it, previewed it and its all white. Then published. For some reason when I go to my website, on my home page it has a band of yellow on the right hand side, where I had changed and saved to white! it is fine on all the other pages only the home page! I have done this half a dozen times and to be completely frank, I am ready to pull my hair out! why is it not saving!!!

    I need to rectify this asap!!

    Cheers Kirsty

      Hi Kirsty,


      I took a screenshot from your Homepage:


      The truth is I have not seen something different from the other pages, in terms of colors and background.



      Please provide us with a screen shot of the problem. For instructions on how to take a screenshot, please use this link.


      To upload the screenshot, simply click on the "Upload" button and follow the steps.

      You can manage your website's background shade through Design > Background > Customize Background > Change Color > More colors. The color picker allows you to choose the exact shade you wish to use on your website.

    I also can't make my color customizations stick.  I have entered (numerous times) the HSB and/or the Hex# values and pressed okay but the top row color never corresponds with my input.  The Hex# I want is 009448 but the palette always reverts to 57AE81.

    Please help!

    I'm having difficulty changing text colors for two items within my Gallery Configuration.  On http://drgnskyn.com, you will see the product gallery (on the main page, as well as on Skyns, Forging, and Maille).  The "paging" text is showing as black, even though I have configured it to show as white.  The mouseover text remains the default dark pink, even though I've changed it to black.  

    I have repeatedly saved and published the site, have tested in multiple browsers and on other machines.

    The process I've used to change the color is to go into Gallery Styles for the gallery, then in Advanced Styles changing the "Paging" and "Text Mouseover" settings. I see the changes in the Editor view and in Preview mode.  I then save the page and publish the site.   The live site has the old font colors.  

    Help, please???

      I fixed it - You actually did it right so I can't really tell which part was wrong - when I changed it it changed as it should on the live site.


      By the way - I couldn't decide what was more awesome your products or brand name... Awesome work!

      Thank you so much, Dror... I was getting really frustrated and thought I was doing it right!  I had tried it about 10 times and over several days before giving up.  Guess you just had the "magic touch."

      And thanks so much for the compliment on my work!

      OK - so it WAS fixed, but the problem is back.  I haven't changed or edited the gallery settings (or the gallery at all, other than to add some more products that happened to get assigned to that gallery).  I've updated the settings on the Tint plugin on the page (which wasn't working suddenly).  Re-saved and published the page and the old fuschia and black text is back!

      I've re-saved and re-published the page and nada - it's still wrong.  The dialog and Preview both show the correct info.  It's only the published version that's wrong.

      Help, please?  The paging, in particular, is REALLY important!

      That's not what I see in the gallery settings.  I see paging set to white and text mouseover set to black.  I see it in the settings and in preview mode.  Save and publish, and the live site doesn't show it now... it DID show it (back when you first fixed it), but somehow it reverted, even though I didn't change anything about the gallery settings.

    Pantone Colour


    I would like to change the colour palette to a specific Pantone number or RGB number- is there any way of doing this? How does the Hex # relate to pantone colours? I tried variations of the RGB number in HSL but no combination would work.

      2) Click 'change style'

      3) Click 'Personalize this header' , and choose customization options to your liking.
