[SOLVED] Changing background color

  • Hi guys,

    I am trying to change the background color on cropped/resized images from white to light grey. I have changed line 229 in /modules/mdimagemagick/override/classes/ImageManager.php from “$srcImage->setImageBackgroundColor(‘white’);” to “$srcImage->setImageBackgroundColor(’#eeeeee’);”, but images are still created with a white background.

    What am I missing? Why isn’t it working?

    Best regards,


  • I still haven’t found a way to solve this.


  • I never tested that module, but are you sure you are editing the correct file?
    Check if you have that file in root override folder under classes or modules.
    And if so, try to edit that line there.
    Also after you edited override files you need to delete ‘cache/class_index.php’ file, for changes to take affect.

  • Maybe the background color of the object needs to be set as well, so an additional $srcImage->setBackgroundColor('#eeeeee'); could help, but I am not sure.

  • Thank you both for your input.
    After some more fiddling around I finally got it to work. Not a 100% sure what made the difference however 😃
