What 'Telling' looks like
Ensure High Contrastfor Text Over Images
When choosing to place text over an image, consider both the text color and the main color of the image. Images with mostly light-colored backgrounds—or images edited to appear faded—are not well suited to white text because the colors are too similar. In these situations, the background will need to be darkened in order to provide enough contrast.
