Photoshop Tips: Opacity

Overview

Some of our features, like Email Photo, Fan Wall, and Voice Recording, require background images with a certain level of opacity in order for the text to be easily read over the image. This is very easy to design using Photoshop.

This article provides some tips on setting the opacity of your images using Photoshop.

  1. Once you have the image all set up and ready to go in Photoshop, select the opacity meter in the toolbar on the right-hand side.
