Image Overlay... only real picture not the "background" of the picture

Recommended Posts

I'm a student, and currently busy with creating my own website, but now I've got a question which I can't figure out myself.

My website is about professional cycling and on it I'll have the jerseys of the teams which I want to overlay when going over it with the mouse. I figured this out OK, but now it happens that if I move over it with my mouse, a big square overlays the picture (because it's a square picture with a transparent background) and I want that there is only an overlay over the jersey and not over the "background" of the picture.

I hope you can help me! Need to fix this!

Thank you in advance!
