How to change the overlay mask colour on the galleries page

Here is a short tip on how to change the background colour of the overlay mask that appear over the galleries thumbnails  – like here:

First you will need to add a GALLERIES content block to a page and in the DISPLAY settings change the INFO STYLE to covering.  Then add a CSS content block to this page and add this code below to it:

/*First part of the code will change the size and the colour of the gallery title*/
.sm-tile-title { 
   font-size: 21px !important;
   color: white !important;
/*The second part of the code will change the colour and opacity of the overlay mask*/
.sm-user-ui .sm-tile-content>.sm-tile-info {
   background-color: rgba(45, 45, 45, 0.6);
