When clicking a gallery image in expand mode while using a mobile device, a
black overlay is added to the image. At the moment, you can remove the black
overlay by removing the title and description of the image.

Alternatively, you can switch to the Wix Pro Gallery which allows you to
customize the expand mode window according to your preferences.

We are always working to update and improve our products, and your feedback is
greatly appreciated.
