The Readability Adjustment
When an image is added to a background of a Section or Header (explained in corresponding sections), a Readability Adjustment will automatically be applied to it. This adjustment changes the settings of the picture as well as the color of the text on top of it to make the text readable. The Readability Adjustment ensures that viewers of the site will not struggle to read the content. Turn this off by clicking the icon to the bottom right of the area you’re editing (not recommended).
