But what if the product photo that you really want to use doesn't have much white space for the ad text?
Let's take a look at this wonderful photo from Golden Shop:
I love the creative angle of this shot, and it perfectly represents Rachel's shop; but what about white space for the ad text? There is some room to the left of the hat, but I suspect that the spot where the green meets the background paper might be distracting if I place text there.
How about this?
I added a white rectangle on top of the photo, and then changed its transparency to 35%. Now I can add some text.
This is a great solution, because I can still see the product behind the rectangle, and I can also read the text of the ad.
You might be wondering how to add a transparent rectangle with text on top it. You can use most photo editing software (like Photoshop or Photoshop Elements), but there's also a non-software, free way too. I'll talk about that in Part 5 of this tutorial series.
