Removing "image with text overlay" text on my header

Greetings :-)

     I am new to the Shopify theme setup and am having a frustrating moment uploading my store header.  For some reason, there is not an option on the Debut theme to just upload an image.   So I selected the "upload image with text" option. 

 

This has resulted in my jpeg which already has text on it being uploaded but the "image with text overlay..." words are still present on the header over the top of my image.  I don't see any way to edit or remove this text box.  I welcome clear assistance and encourage the theme designers to add an option for just an image to be uploaded. 

 

Thank you.

Hi @songofthedove,

 

Dani here from Shopify. Thanks for writing in!

 

You can remove this text in the menu on the left in your theme editor. Once you click on your Image with Text Overlay section, you should see a textbox with the title Heading. If you remove the text in this text box, the overlay words will be removed.

 

 

You may need to remove the text in the description below the Header as well if you haven't already.

 

How have you found the design process so far with Shopify? If you're interested, we have a free course on Design. It's taught by an industry expert to guide you on how to design your website to increase conversions! I'd highly recommend it.

 

Let me know if you have any further questions, I'd be happy to continue helping you.

 

All the best,

 

Dani

Hi songofthedove!

You should be able to use the theme editor to delete the default text. Although it feels a bit silly to use an "Image with text overlay" and then delete the text, you can do just that:

Hope that helps!

Thank you. I would be happy to just upload my image without a text
overlay. However, I do not see this as an option in the Theme
customization unless I am using the Slide Show option.

Also, I did not see how to edit or remove the text overlay using the theme
editor, although I played with this option a few times. This is why I
reached out to you all.

Thank you for your response Dani. I am truly puzzled with the trouble I am
having correcting this header issue.

I have been both a computer programmer and website designer, although I
generally use WordPress these days. So I am not a novice at setting up
themes.

That said, I went back to my Shopify account, selected Customize, then
Header. I then selected Edit and received a dialog box about entering Alt
text, but nothing for editing the text on the image.

I have also removed the text in the Theme box labeled Text in the Header
editing area. This did not remove the text box from my header image.

I appreciate the link to the design tutorial and will certainly watch it!
But meanwhile, why isn't there an option to simply upload an image (no
text) to the header?

Many thanks again, Dani. I look forward to finding a solution.

Thanks for clarifying that information @songofthedove!

 

I've created a short video to show you how to remove this text. Instead of clicking Edit under the image, you'll just need to scroll down and delete the text in the Header section. 

 

If you're seeing something else, would you be able to share a screenshot of what you are seeing in your Theme Editor? This will help us narrow down exactly why you're not seeing the option to remove this text overlay.

 

Thanks again!

 

Dani
