Overlaying Elements onto Images and Video

Image and video blocks can act as containing elements just like sections and boxes, which allows you to overlay elements on them.

Drag and hover your elements on top of your image/video until you see a light blue overlay. This will confirm that you are dropping your elements on top, not above or below.

If you are adding multiple elements on top of your image or video, it is best practice to group your elements in a box. This way, you can center all elements at once and avoid styling issues.

Adding opacity to elements

When using overlays, you may want to adjust the opacity of one of the elements. You can apply opacity to elements in Builder in several ways.

To add opacity to an element:

  1. Select the element and navigate to the Styles tab.
  2. Adjust the opacity in the Opacity section by changing the slider value.

👉If you adjust opacity this way, all child elements will have that opacity as well.

To add opacity to the background color of an element:

  1. Select the element and navigate to the Styles tab.
  2. Select the Background color and adjust the Alpha channel value.

👉Adjusting the background color opacity will affect that element only, not the child elements.
