How to put text on top of a picture 



It is possible to place text on top of a picture using some special programming code. 

However, we very much recommend against doing this.  It can be very difficult for your visitors to read text that is on top of a picture. 

But, if you want do make it happen, you can follow these steps:

1 - Size the picture to a width of no more than 600. 

2 - Load the picture (in this example, the picture is called ‘background1.jpg’).  You can read more about loading pictures into Web Builder Express.

3 – Enter the special programming code which loads the picture at its proper width and height and puts the text on top. 

When editing a web page, click on the 'HTML' button in the bottom left to see the code:

Next, add this special HTML code:

Be sure to change the appropriate values for: 

- height (in this example 431) to the actual values that match your picture
- width (in this example 600) to the actual values that match your picture. 
- picture file name reference (in this example /sties/TheVineOfHomePIOM/images/background1.jpg) to match your Web Builder Express site name (replace TheVineOfHopePIOM) and picture (replace background1.jpg)
