To Display Text Over Image It Takes Only One Step:-

Step 1.Make a HTML file and define markup and styling

We make a HTML file and save it with a name text_display.html

<html>
<head>
<style>
body
{
 text-align:center;
 width:100%;
 margin:0 auto;
 padding:0px;
 font-family:helvetica;
 background-color:#81DAF5;
}
#wrapper
{
 text-align:center;
 margin:0 auto;
 padding:0px;
 width:995px;
}
#image_div
{
 width:500px;
 margin-left:245px;
 position:relative;
}
#image_div img
{
 width:100%;
}
#image_div #image_label
{
 margin:0px;
 position:absolute;
 bottom:7px;
}
#image_div #image_label span
{
 background-color: #0B4C5F;
 opacity:0.8;
 font-size:25px;
 padding:7px;
 box-sizing:border-box;
 color:white;
 font-weight:bold;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>
<div id="wrapper">

<div id="image_div">
 <img src="image/image1.jpg">
 <p id="image_label"><span>This Is Text Over Image</span></p>
</div>

</div>
</body>
</html>

In this step we create a div which work as a wrapper for image and text then we use simple markup to display text over image.But remember one thing we use 'span' in 'p' element because we need to display background color only behind the text not on the whole paragraph this is the most important rule to display text over image with background color always use inline element for this purpose.You may also like slide text on image using jQuery.



Thats all, this is how to display text over image using HTML and CSS.You can customize this code further as per your requirement. And please feel free to give comments on this tutorial.
