Add HTML Text layer over images

It would be nice if we could put HTML text on a layer over an image.

@MattL842 Thank you for the feedback.  If you looking to add text to an image you can try the Artwork tool in the is part of the image library.  Here is a knowledge base article that might help.

Yes, I'm aware that I can add text to an image in another program and import that entire image with text into Constant Contact. I'm saying that it would be better if we could click/drag and add text as a separate HTML layer on top of an image.

 

In addition to being easier to make changes to text location, the primary reason this would be helpful is so the recipient can see the HTML content before they click to allow photos to load. When the text is embedded in the photo, the viewer does not see what is essentially the equivalent of a website's H1 heading.

Yes, please. This is exactly what I need to do as well. I'd like to do a custom border behind my text like this. Screen Shot 2018-07-17 at 9.43.39 AM.png

I don't want to embed it in the image because I want the point size to be responsive for mobile.

Why is this not a basic feature? Adding text or a button over an image is an essential part of building a good email. It's much easier and cleaner on MailChimp. Very disappointed with this.

I vote yes. Some of your templates allow this, but you can't change the background image. Look at the coffee template.

Regular Participant

I vote yes!! Please add this feature.

Occasional Participant

Yes! It would be nice if this post could get more traction and more votes. This should be a standard feature.

YES! This would be so helpful. Or at least let us change the image on a template (like the Thanksgiving Event one with "Let's all share a table" text overlay). That has text over the image that you can move around and edit.
