As these background images will be overlayed by textual content, consideration needs to be given to the legibility of the text.  To ensure text legibility, we recommend that you:

  1. Use images that are predominantly the same tone (i.e. mostly dark or most light)
  2. Use images that are either mostly dark or mostly light (avoid images which are mostly mid-tone)
  3. Set the text colour of the text appropriately (i.e. very dark text on a light image, or very light text on a dark image)
  4. Once in place, review your background image / text colour combination to assess the legibility
