In text objects, can you add an image AND text into the foreground?

I have a text object where I have text in the foreground and an image as the background; however, the background image doesn't cover the entire object and the rest of the background is transparent.

Is there a way to add the text AND image into the foreground? Or, is there a way to make the background behind the background image a specific color?

Thank you!

Re: In text objects, can you add an image AND text into the foreground?

Hi,

If you want to add the Background color for the image  i think its not possible ,

the other way would be make  take that image on the paint add some background color  then use that .

Or  create a text box with some background color , and add image on top of the background object.. that would work.

Thanks

Hi,

I am not trying to add color to an image. I am trying to add an image AND text in the foreground, which it won't allow me to do. You must select that the foregound is either text or image, and I cannot find a way to use both in the same text object.

Having the image in the background doesn't work either because the text object automatically makes the rest of the background around the image transparent, which doesn't fit my need.

Hi,

You cna add an image and write the text in "Text" part of text object, so it will be something like this:

Textobj.bmp

hope this helps!

Nicole ,

It is not possible to set background of an image background as it is in image and we can not edit it .

May be in some other image edit software you can edit it and do it .

Yes you can use text AND Image in a text box object  as per suggested by Syamal

Re: In text objects, can you add an image AND text into the foreground?

Both at a time may not be possible but I would suggest you to create and combine the image and text externally and use the complete image in the text object as an image.

May be this is not technically straight forward but this can solve your issue.

Cheers,

Hi Jaime,

Thanks. I did try that, but it isn't what I'm looking for.

If you'll notice on your attachment, the background behind the image is transparent. I need my background behind the image to be white (I know I can edit it in a graphic software, but I was trying to see if Qlikview had the capability to do this on its own).

Hi,

Yes, I did try that in my original posting. That's not quite what I'm looking for.

I want there to be text in the foreground and an image in the background, as you have posted; however, I want the area around the background image to be a specific color. If you add text in the foreground and an image in the background, the area around the background image is transparent.
