Well-styled Banner or Hero Image - an important part of any email marketing campaign as it introduces your business and sets the overall tone of the email. When it is eye-catching, well-designed, and close to the branding, a banner or hero image certainly helps with the read-through rate, and in the long run, it is a way to promote your company.

That is why it is important to use multiple tools to style your main image, such as adding text. In Stripo, you can do it easily.

We have 3 options to put text on the image, and we will look at them in this article.

First option: use the "Banner" block;

Upload an image to the banner block and add the text from the top panel to it:

The second option: use block "Text" and add a background image behind it;

Add the text block, turn on the background image of the structure, and upload your image:

Please be sure that your image is wide enough! It is necessary that the image fits the dimensions of the structure itself (its width and height). Otherwise, the image will be non-responsive.

But don't be scared if you see only a small part of the image - add a spacer block and turn on the "Dynamic spacer," drop it over and under the text block, and stretch it.

I would like to note that using a picture as a background is not always a good option. For example, the Outlook email client has some problems displaying background images.

I would like to advise you to read our article for more details.

Also, the background image cannot be responsive for mobile since the screen on the mobile is much narrower than on the desktop, and only part of the background is visible.

And last but not least, it's editing your image with the built-in image editor;

Add an "Image" block for this function and make changes by editing the image itself. To do so, please click on the "magic wand".

After that, the image editor will be opened. Add some text and save the changes.

Just to let you know, after saving the picture, you won't be able to change it!
