In times of modern web design trends, there are multiple times when a designer needs to add fancy texts. And a text over an image is one of them. However, most of the time, users find it very confusing, which requires them to go through multiple steps to accomplish this design need. Therefore, in this blog post, I am going to share with you some simple steps to display text over an image. Plus, I’ll also share how you can add a background color to it.
So, without any delay, let’s see how we can display text over an image.
Divi Text Over an Image on hover
Step 1: Insert text module
To start creating the text over an image, we need to insert the Text module in the builder.
After inserting the module, add the text you want to display over an image.
Step 2: Style text
Now, once added the text, move to the Design tab, and inside Text settings, style the text as required.
For this tutorial, I’ve made the following customizations,
Text Font: Acme
Text Font Weight: Bold
Text Size: 42px
Text Letter Spacing: 4px
Line Height: 1.8em
Shadow: Look in the screenshot
Text Shadow Horizontal Length: 0em
Text Shadow Vertical Length: 0.04em
The text will look same as the below screenshot after applying the customizations.
Step 3: Assign CSS ID
Once you made the text customizations, move to the Advanced tab, and in the CSS ID & Classes.
Here, in the CSS Class, input clip-image-hover CSS class name, and Save Changes
Step 4: Add CSS
Now, click three dots at the center and then settings (⚙️) icon to open the page’s settings.
Then, move to the Advanced tab of the page settings, and the Custom CSS, input the below CSS.
Step 5: Input image URL
Upon inserting the CSS, make sure you input your image URL in the CSS, which you want to be seen when users hover over the text.
Step 6: Adjust width of the Text
After image URL insertion, we need to adjust the width of the text. So, when users hover over the text, it doesn’t show below image from a distance. To adjust the width of the text, you need to go to the Design tab of the module >> Sizing >> Width >> and adjust text width according to the requirement.
That’s it; we’ve successfully created our text over an image on hover in Divi. Now, let’s see how we can create text over an image by default.

Now, after choosing the Text Style, input your fancy text in the Fancy Text field.
Step 4: Choose Image to create text Over an Image
