Sometimes when you place a Google Adsense ad on your website you will see a light yellow background behind the ad, or you might see the yellow box before the Google ad loads to fill up the space. In most cases the ad will eventually cover the yellow background box, except for a few rare occasions or if you are using a responsive ad, or an ad block that displays in various sizes
What you are seeing is some CSS code from your website theme that is being used incorrectly by the Adsense code. Specifically, the ‘ins’ tag in the Adsense code is reading the settings from your theme, but the only reason the ad is using it, is because the ‘ins class=”adsbygoogle”…’ is not defined by the Google Adsense code, or by your own theme.
Many other websites tell you how the you fix the yellow box background issue by changing the color of the ‘ins’ tag in your css file, but that is not the correct way to go about fixing it.
What you really want to do is define the entire ‘ins class=”adsbygoogle”…’ tag so that your default ‘ins’ is left alone, and you are only changing the one associated with the ad. We don’t want to go about fixing the ads while ruining other parts of your website in the process.
To get rid of that adsense yellow box background you need to add a small bit of CSS code into your theme’s CSS file. To do this in WordPress, head into the admin panel and go to ‘Appearance -> Editor’ and then add the following code to the CSS file (stylesheet) of your theme. For other Content Management Systems, you will need to find and edit your CSS file.

The more I used the Pentax K10D, the more impressed I am with it. Not only is it cheaper then the Canon XTI, but it is in my opinion a much better camera. In fact it is better then every other camera in its class. No other camera in its class has built in image stabilization, a weather sealed body, 14bit RAW images, and so much more. Today I will be talking about the cameras Multi-exposure feature. This feature does exactly what you would think; it allows you to take multiple photos(up to 9) and combine them into one image.
You might be wondering how this is useful. Well, you could do fun stuff like make ghosts appear in you photos, or you can really put it to use, and use it as a ND filter. Say you want to take a photo of a running river, and you want to water to look like it really moves. Lets say that the proper exposure for this scene is 1/2s @ f/10. That will give you some of the flowing look you want, but not enough. With Multi-exposure you could do 9 shots at 1/2s @ f/10, and that would give you a photo of 4.5s @ f/10. Now your scene will really flow. Plus 9 x 1/2s will have a lot less noise then 4.5s at any ISO. This same feature can be used with night or astro photograhy to cut down on the noise.
I haven’t been able to test this out besides for the fun stuff, but I look forward to my first test at a river or creek.

Happy shooting 🙂
