I'm trying to overlay an image in GEPro, which I've done many times before successfully. This time the transparency slider is behaving differently; it makes the image either 100% opaque or 0% opaque (i.e. 100% clear). There is no in between. From the far left, move it one notch to the right and the image becomes 100% opaque; continue moving the slider and the image stays 100% opaque.

Hi Bob,
 
That's a little strange.  What format is your image?  PNG images can have a transparent background that may work better.  I don't really know if that's relevant.
 
Just to be really clear, there are two transparency sliders, one in the Add Image Overlay window and one at the bottom of My Places.
 
Could you post a copy of the image here for us to test?  With this forum format, it' probably best to put the image in an image storage site, like DropBox maybe, and post the link here.
 
We're glad to help.

The image is .jpg. I tried a .png version after your suggestion, but found the same issue. 

Here is a link to the image: TFL-Speck1913.jpg

No, it didn't work. I was able to open the kmz file in GE and open the edit dialog box. But when I move the slider, the transparency does not change. 

I've got a workaround though, I'll just trace the lines I need traced, then turn off the image overlay.

Thanks for your help

The slider should work.  Something's broken.  I guess you figured that out.  Have you tried restarting or reinstalling the program?

I was having the same issue but found that the problem only happens when the "Use photorealistic atmosphere rendering" box is checked. Disable it and you should be good to go.
