Hello,

You can achieve it in two ways. First - with .tpl file modifications, second with css only. I will describe both of them here. below I attach the screenshot of category page. We will remove this dark rectangle with "Women" description and image.

1. modification of .tpl file

category.tpl open this file - it is located in your theme directory, path to this file looks like (for default bootstrap template): /themes/default-bootstrap/category.tpl. near line 28 you can find code like below, remove it and save changes. Your category image will disappear. If you dont see changes after file change - you have to clear shop cache

 

{if $scenes || $category->description || $category->id_image}
			<div class="content_scene_cat">
            	 {if $scenes}
                 	<div class="content_scene">
                        <!-- Scenes -->
                        {include file="$tpl_dir./scenes.tpl" scenes=$scenes}
                        {if $category->description}
                            <div class="cat_desc rte">
                            {if Tools::strlen($category->description) > 350}
                                <div id="category_description_short">{$description_short}</div>
                                <div id="category_description_full" class="unvisible">{$category->description}</div>
                                <a href="{$link->getCategoryLink($category->id_category, $category->link_rewrite)|escape:'html':'UTF-8'}" class="lnk_more">{l s='More'}</a>
                            {else}
                                <div>{$category->description}</div>
                            {/if}
                            </div>
                        {/if}
                    </div>
				{else}
                    <!-- Category image -->
                    <div class="content_scene_cat_bg"{if $category->id_image} style="background:url({$link->getCatImageLink($category->link_rewrite, $category->id_image, 'category_default')|escape:'html':'UTF-8'}) right center no-repeat; background-size:cover; min-height:{$categorySize.height}px;"{/if}>
                        {if $category->description}
                            <div class="cat_desc">
                            <span class="category-name">
                                {strip}
                                    {$category->name|escape:'html':'UTF-8'}
                                    {if isset($categoryNameComplement)}
                                        {$categoryNameComplement|escape:'html':'UTF-8'}
                                    {/if}
                                {/strip}
                            </span>
                            {if Tools::strlen($category->description) > 350}
                                <div id="category_description_short" class="rte">{$description_short}</div>
                                <div id="category_description_full" class="unvisible rte">{$category->description}</div>
                                <a href="{$link->getCategoryLink($category->id_category, $category->link_rewrite)|escape:'html':'UTF-8'}" class="lnk_more">{l s='More'}</a>
                            {else}
                                <div class="rte">{$category->description}</div>
                            {/if}
                            </div>
                        {/if}
                     </div>
                  {/if}
            </div>
		{/if}

 

2. Hide category image with css styles

To hide mentoned category block (wide image + descriptions) with css styles, you have to alter global.css or category.css file. Both of these files you can find in your theme directory. At the end of the file paste code:

.content_scene_cat {display:none!important;}

After changes please save file and clear browser cache (your browser remembers old .css files so you will not see changes). After that category block will disappear.
