Yes, with a white background-color, I can see the images in their original color. But, when I change the menu color to my color #310000 the image colors return to the standard light-blue from the pelt skin style. You can see the problem here  http://www.discountdracula.com.

No luck with this approach either.

I was hoping to avoid this, but it may be my last resort...
