CSS image text overlay thingy

  • # May 4, 2010 at 4:59 pm

    Hello folks,

    I am a complete and utter CSS idiot. I know less than nothing.

    I currently use WordPress with a theme for my website and I want to do something that no doubt is really simple but can’t seem to find any easy to use websites out there that will tell me what I need to do.

    Here’s a page from my website that I am using as a test page…

    What I want to do is overlay some gradient text in the top left of that big image on the page and then have some smaller text underneath it.

    Does anybody have any code I can use to create what i’m after possibly?

    Any help is very much appreciated.

    The page has three background images really – one is this bar, then a ‘header’ image of sorts that blends into the page background. I was going to use tables but the actual content was about 350+ pixels from the top of the page and it looked awful No matter what you do a crafty user can always steal an image. You would just be making it harder. And if someone wanted that image chances are they are gnona do whatever it takes to get it.
