Hi all,

can you please help me out with the following:

1) The images should enlarge on hover with jquery effect, this is done with css. Only problem is the image top right and middle left. I tried using z-index but it only works in FF.

2) the transparent background is gone in IE8. I used a filter, but the background is way too transparent. How can I create the same background without using a transparent png? Or isn't that possible?

Any advice is appreciated.
