Add text/links to images

You can add text to the images of most content elements. This is optional, but can improve the appearance of your shop and make it look more professional. In addition to text, you can also add links to your images. This way you can, for example, advertise a specific product category or draw attention to an ongoing sale and easily redirect your customers to the relevant page.

If the content element contains multiple images, such as the image slider, the settings for the text are usually only applied to the image selected during editing. If you want to add text to multiple images in a content element, you will need to add the text to each image individually.

To get started, navigate to Editor. Select the image content element or hover over it with your mouse and select EditCircleIcon.png in the upper right corner.

The text settings are not available for every image content element.

Option Description
Headline This will be displayed as the first line of text. It has the largest font size.
Text This will be displayed below the headline. Compared to the headline, the font size is much smaller.
Link If you would like to add a link to your image, insert it here. The link will not be visible on the image.
Open link in new tab

If you want a link that you have added to be opened in a new tab, activate this checkbox. This can, for example, be useful when you link to an external page, so that customers can come back to your shop more easily.

Show button on image

If you have added a link, you can activate this checkbox to display a separate button. This clearly signals to your customers that the image is actually a link.

Even if you have decided to display a button, your customers can still select any part of the image to open the link.

Button text

If you have decided to show a button, you can also add a text to it. This can be anything you want. Make sure you use clear wording that motivates your customers to actually select the button. The use of "buy", for example, could stop customers from doing so as they might be worried of accidentally making a purchase.

Instead of "Buy now", you could opt for a solution like "Discover now" or "View products".

How to modify colours

All of the following options can be set on the third tab ModifyColours.png after you have added text to an image.

Option Description
Text colour

Use the drop-down menu to choose from the shop colours you have selected, as well as black or white. Make sure to choose a colour that contrasts well with the overlay colour to ensure the text is easy to read.

Button colour

Use the drop-down menu to choose from the shop colours you have selected, as well as black or white. If you decided not to display a button, this option is not available.

Colour overlay

Use the drop-down menu to choose from the shop colours you have selected, as well as black or white. Make sure to choose a colour that contrasts well with the text colour to ensure the text is easy to read.

In some themes and depending on the type of content element, the width of the colour overlay depends on the length of the added text. However, the overlay only extends to a predefined point before the text breaks into a new line.

Cover overlay opacity

Set the opacity of the overlay by moving the slider or changing the number on the right-hand side. Make sure to set an opacity level that provides a good contrast between the added image and the text so that the text is easy to read.

If you don't want to use the overlay, set the opacity to 0.
