With the new feature of being able to choose background images, there are times when having a clear background would be VERY advantageous! I made a work around once, and the email looked fantastic, but when I just tried it again, the email looked great in Constant Contact, but when sent, the clear backgrounds were changed to a brilliant blue - which made all the text unreadable.
I would love to EASILY have an option to choose the color "clear" or "transparent" for the blocks.
