I want to use a photo across the whole card but I can't get text to stand out enough over an image. Any ideas?

Hi Ronin56,

You can place a semi-transparent rectangle to make text better readable. See Assistant > Sophisticated Designs > Cityscape for an example. Both image and rectangle are in the background layer.

Another way is to make the photo fade out behind text. For this, apply a mask to the image. This technique was used in Assistant > Conservative Design > Cristal Purity (Maestro word on a gray stripe). Masks are located on the Image tab of Inspector.

By the way, if you are looking for some effects/solutions for your card, look through ready-made designs in the library of templates in the Assistant.
