Many Splash themes come equipped with a Color Mask element, which most commonly lives in the page's Cover Block. A Color Mask is just a fancy term for the color overlay on top of your image.

Using a Color Mask is a great way to emphasize dynamic text on top of an image, as well as contribute to the overall style of your event page. Check out an example:

How do I add a Color Mask element to a block? (Designer Pro)

Working on a content block that doesn't already have a Color Mask element built in? No sweat! Adding a Color Mask is just like adding any other Designer Pro element to your event page.

1. In your Event Editor's Layout menu, click on the block you'd like to add an element to.

2. Click the circular "+" button underneath the current elements.

3. Search for the element you'd like to add - in this case, Color Mask.

4. In the Layout tab, drag the element to the top of your block. It's important the Color Mask element is first in your list of elements, so that it doesn't prevent buttons from being clickable.

5. Style the new element as you please!
