Image and video blocks can act as containing elements just like a Section or Box, which means you can overlay elements on them.

To create an overlay:

  1. Drag and hover your elements on top of your image or video until a light blue overlay displays. This will confirm that you are dropping your elements on top, rather than above or below.
  2. Drop the element. If adding more than one element, consider grouping them to help you style them more easily. Press Cmd/Ctrl + g or right-click and select Group Selection from the context menu.
  3. Style as desired.

To confirm where you've dropped the element, you can always check the Layers tab. If needed, you can also rearrange the layers by dragging them in the Layers tab.

The video below shows adding a Text block and a Button on top of an Image. It also demonstrates grouping and styling the group, including adjusting the opacity of the group. Access Opacity in the Style tab and adjust the opacity setting with the element selected.

To learn how to change a layout to a columns layout, refer to Convert a Layout to Columns.
