YOU MIGHT THINK that headlines are more legible in black. But when placed on an image, you’d be wrong. Even when placed on a light background, such as the sky and clouds seen here, the black headline looks muddy and hard to read.
White headlines are almost always far more legible on top of photographs, even when the background is pale. If you’re not sure about legibility, consider adding a slight drop shadow to the text to give it a lift from the page.
