    Arrow disabling background-color for images hover

    if I'm using a link hover for texts that adds a background color as in
    PHP Code:
    a:hover {
        
    background-color#000000;

    how do I disable this hover for images so it doesn't get the background color?

    Try something like

    a:hover img { background-color: none; }

    none is not a valid value for background-color. You mean transparent.

    Code:
    background-color: transparent;

    CSS:
    Code:
    a.image:hover { background-color: transparent; }
    HTML:
    Code:
    <a class="image" href="whatever.html"><img src="pic.gif"></a>

    You are applying the background color to the A element, not the IMG, and I do not know of anyway in CSS to apply style X to element Y only if it does not contain element Z. (You can do the inverse: and apply a style to element Z only if it is contained by element Y, but that's no help in this situation.)
