My aim is that I have a basic slider and I want to put a image on top of it. I have tried to put a image like hexagon.png with transparent background. Now problem is that I am not able to see image on top.
But in case of image if I write a background color it`s working absolutely fine.I have checked in browser that url is image is correct or not. It`s also correct.

<div id="wowslider-container1" style="margin-bottom:50px;" >
<div class="overlay"></div>
<div class="ws_images">
<li><img src="data1/images/20140211_runway_page_slide2.jpg" alt="20140211_Runway_Page_Slide2" title="20140211_Runway_Page_Slide2" id="wows1_0"/></li>
<li><img src="data1/images/fashion_your_life_with_us.jpg" alt="fashion_your_life_with_us" title="fashion_your_life_with_us" id="wows1_1"/></li>
<li><img src="data1/images/jannatnazirnewwinterpartywearcollection2014forwomen1.jpg" alt="Jannat-Nazir-New-Winter-Party-Wear-Collection-2014-for-Women-1" title="Jannat-Nazir-New-Winter-Party-Wear-Collection-2014-for-Women-1" id="wows1_2"/></li>
<li><img src="data1/images/menahelandmehreenlatest2012collection3.jpg" alt="Menahel-and-Mehreen-Latest-2012-Collection-3" title="Menahel-and-Mehreen-Latest-2012-Collection-3" id="wows1_3"/></li>
<li><img src="data1/images/zara.jpg" alt="zara" title="zara" id="wows1_4"/></li>
<li><img src="data1/images/zara3girls.jpg" alt="zara-3-girls" title="zara-3-girls" id="wows1_5"/></li>

This is the css of the overlay object.

#wowslider-container1 .overlay
position: absolute;
left: -10px;
right: -10px;
bottom: -10px;
z-index: 99;
display: block;

Please suggest what canbe a reason. Thanks in advance

Is this a typo or do you have the correct url in your actual code?


it should either be:


or depending on path:


You probably don't want to repeat that image anyway and I guess you need to position it so maybe shorthand would be better.

background:url(../img/hexagon.png) no-repeat 50% 50%;

Remove the min width and height as they are not needed because you have defined the size via the top,right,left and bottom values.

The above assumes that the parent of all this is position:relative for the stacking context.
